An antique, Art-nouveau-era ring, made by the notable American jewelers Allsopp Bros. This ring is modeled in 14k yellow gold, and features a graceful, deeply-carved leaf decor. It has a broad, tapering face, and a smooth, lobed gallery. A large, sparkling, natural aquamarine is set, gypsy-style, into the ring face. The deep, fluid lines in this setting's carved details are especially wonderful, and they are enhanced by the bloomed finish. Its substantial weight and profile make it traditionally masculine, but I think this tough and romantic ring is well suited to all genders.
