Antique-Inspired Lapis, Turquoise, and Carnelian Ring
A sweet vintage ring inspired by antiquity yet executed in a modern style. Turquoise and carnelian (a ruddy variety of polycrystalline quartz) are among the oldest gemstones recorded in use, and likewise lapis lazuli (uniquely classified among gemstones as it’s technically a rock and not a mineral!) has been beloved for millennia. Slim and perfect for stacking, this ring is a wonderful way to add a pop of colour with a few of our favourite old stones.
Good vintage condition with moderate wear in line with age and use.
