This ring is a classic representation of an Art Nouveau beauty. The face is beautifully rendered and her expression is one of peace and ease. The flowing hair catches highlights of gold and frames the face. Also known as a goddess or fairy she is an image of female empowerment. Adorned at the top with a head dress with three antique diamonds and at the bottom neck five seed pearls.
