Stories exist about the Man in the Moon in cultures all over the Northern Hemisphere. The Man in the Moon was a very popular motif during the Art Nouveau era, a period that valued romance and mystery. This recycled 14k yellow gold ring is set with a tigers eye carved with the Man in the Moon. The striking gem is bezel set above a slim half round band. Tigers eye has an optical property known as chatoyancy, intergrown fibers that reflect a silky shimmer that almost seems to flow across the gem. Its is a wonderful medium for depicting his whimsical face, and the carving is very sensitive.
