This ring was originally $195

A dramatic, bronze ring featuring a 10mm, round, faceted black onyx cabochon and a 10mm round, white, freshwater pearl. I've carved a setting reminiscent of the infinity symbol, or lemniscate, with two grape leaves flanking the stones and applied a patina to highlight detail and enhance the antique feeling of the piece.

This is ring is currently a size 7, but it can be sized from 5-9. Please let me know your preference in the comments section.

The inspiration for this piece lies in a photograph of the Marchesa Luisa Casati by the great photographer Adolph de Meyer from 1912. The Marchesa gazes out at the viewer with great intensity and on her right hand she wears what appears to be a very bold ring of two pearls; one light and one dark. For the first three decades of the 20th century the Marchesa was a muse for countless artists, designers and writers. Her influence is still felt beyond the grave, and I knew it was only a a matter of time when I would create a piece inspired by her. This ring is my homage.

**A note on brass: this ring may leave a mark when worn(but it may not). A person with a more acidic system is more likely to have a reaction than someone who is more alkaline. A beautiful patina will emerge on this piece as it ages, but can be removed with a jewelry cloth. Should you desire, I will be more than happy to apply a liquid that prevents brass from marking the skin, please just let me know in the comments section.
