Antique 10K & Persian Turquoise Ring

  • Sale
  • Regular price $1,500.00

Persian turquoise was very popular among Victorians. It was brought to Europe via Turkey, and called “Pierre Turquoise” (Turkish Stone) by the French. It is harder than American turquoise, and  has a pure blue color with no matrix, which was desirable in the Victorian Era. Queen Victoria was said to be very fond of the stone, which added to its popularity. In many cultures, it is said to bring protection, health, prosperity and love. Some wear it to ward off the Evil Eye.

This Victorian ring most likely began as a button! Converted at an earlier date with a simple shank, it is crafted in 10 karat yellow gold and adorned with bright aqua-blue Persian turquoise cabochon stones. A splendidly quaint piece that will fit right in with your beloved collection!
