Periapt Ring in 14k Yellow Gold
A 14k gold ring, made by Poor Mouchette, to serve as a periapt, or lucky charm— a symbolic shield against whatever is encroaching. The highly-detailed band has been carefully moulded and re-cast in the likeness of a Victorian-era ring from my own collection— one shoulder is carved with a small horseshoe and a group of four-leaf clovers, the other is carved with a wishbone and a spattering of forget-me-nots. At the center of these cheerful, talismanic objects we've set a vibrant blue, natural-and-untreated turquoise cabochon. The very small scale and fine execution of these carvings is wonderful, and unlike anything being produced today. The back of the tapering band is smooth.
Ready to ship in : US 6. Re-sizing to a US size 4 - 8 is complimentary.
Bezel measures approx 10 mm x 7.8 mm. Carving extends down each shoulder approx 13.2 mm. Band measures approx 7.5 mm at the shoulder and tapers to approx 2.1 mm at the back. Weight is 4.88 grams.
This ring is also available, made to order, in 14k gold. Please allow 3 - 4 weeks for us to complete your jewel. I am happy to customize the center stone to suit your taste or symbolic preferences— lapis, bloodstone, green or blue turquoise, coral, and moss agate would all be good choices for this design. I select all of my material carefully, and I'm very happy to work with you on customization. Please contact me with your ideas.
