Description

Our stately ring takes its design from a splendid ring in The Met collection. Crafted in gold with carved nephrite, the original ring is attributed to Iran or Central Asia and dates to the late 15th–early 16th century

The ring's gold shank is cast in the shape of two dragons' heads. It holds a jade stone engraved with religious verses known as the Nad-i 'Ali, an invocation to 'Ali ibn Abi Talib, son-in-law of the Prophet Muhammad. The text is written in mirror reverse, suggesting the stone's possibly use as a seal. Further tiny poetic inscriptions are perhaps invested with protective qualities.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not pleased Description on this ring said that it was used for a seal, sadly the head of the stone is smooth with no carvings to indicate a seal I don’t think I would’ve purchased the ring had I known this in advance

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fit for the Pope! I bought this ring in a size 10 and return it immediately. It is huge and heavy. It needs a big man with a big hand. I put it on and felt like I had on a piece costume jewelry from a play. It is very well made and handsome. It is just too big for an average size man's hand.
