Art Nouveau Webbed Turquoise Lotus Flower Ring in 14k Gold

An antique ring, made in 14k yellow gold, and set with a striking, webbed turquoise cabochon. This natural, untreated gem is greenish-blue with red-brown matrix; it floats, in a milgrained bezel, between the two, nodding lotus flowers that decorate the shoulders of the Art Nouveau setting. These lotus blossoms are gracefully carved, with tiny stippled details on the inner petals. The flowers' stems float above and below the turquoise gem, and transition into a split shoulder. Ring shank tapers toward the back. This is a wonderful Art Nouveau period design. The lotus flowers insinuate an Egyptian theme. This would be a sweet promise ring or an admirable staple in a turquoise lover's jewelry wardrobe.
