18ct Pearl and Blue Enamel Ring

The Curio

Description:


Striking cobalt blue enamel inset with six glowing pearls comprises the central medallion of this special 19th century jewel. Pearls were often described in the 19th century as “tears of heaven,” frequently found in memorial jewelry and sentimental treasures; I believe this special ring may have been designed as an abstract rendering of this concept. Pearl-set clouds upon a midnight sky geometrically arranged, yet sensually abstract, the pearls threaten to tumble down as tears from the ether. An exceptional example for the collector in search of a magnificent concept piece.
