A stunning antique beauty, this lush 20k yellow gold turquoise and coral ring dates from the 18th century. Deep, floral hand-engraving embellishes the band and bezel settings, while wonderfully colored glass turquoise and salmon coral offer a gorgeous pop of color.

Glass turquoise was common in this era, when the stone was a tremendously rare gem found only in hard-to-access Iranian mines. At this time, its value was comparable with that of diamond, and high-quality stimulants were ubiquitous.
