This Early Victorian amazonite ring is absolutely incredible, so striking and unusual. A oval of pleasantly mottled blue-green amazonite is prong set in an elaborately worked sterling silver setting. The top plaque of the ring displays a lovely geometry and the shoulders are decorated with a floral and vine design. The name "Lucero" is hand engraved on the outside of the back of the band. A beautiful and fascinating mystery. Circa 1850-1860.
Amazonite is a favourite gem of ours, its color is so unique and pleasing. The gem was treasured by many early civilizations and is a great stone to wear in the modern world too: it is believed to absorb microwaves and cell phone emanations, and defend against electromagnetic pollution.
