If you've ever visited a cathedral, you might have noticed a dramatic circular stained glass window dominating one of the walls. This type of window is called a rose window, named so for the fact that it's made of a series of smaller windows radiating out from the center like wheel spokes or flower petals. The rose window developed out of the oculus, a small round window found in Ancient Roman architecture, but it was during the mid-twelfth century with the development of Gothic architecture in France that rose windows came into prominence. Later they spread to many places in Europe, notably Spain and England. Every element of a Gothic cathedral had meaning. The same is true for rose windows. Their symbolism lies in geometry and the sense that many parts make a whole.
The dogwood tree is symbolically associated with Christianity for many reasons, one of which is the cross-like pattern visible on the petals of its blossoms.
This unique ring resembles a rose window decorated with dogwood flowers. Made of 14 karat gold, it is a wonderful testimony to the highly skilled artisan who made it. From the intricate face, to the etched shoulders and the stunning basket, it's like a little piece of art to wear on your hand! A lovely, special ring sure to garner interest and admiration every time you put it on!
