A stunning Art Deco style ring crafted from sterling silver set with a central round blue cabochon lapis lazuli stone, surrounded by sparkling marcasite gemstones.
A gemstone so vibrant it was once ground up and used to tint only the finest focal points in Renaissance paintings, lapis lazuli is a rich deep blue semi-precious gemstone daubed with golden pyrite freckles. Much loved not just in painting and semi-precious jewellery, lapis lazuli has also been used to create ornaments and even decorate ancient Egyptian tombs and statues.
Once used as a substitute for the shine of a diamond, the natural semi-precious gemstone marcasite is now celebrated for its lustre and metallic beauty.
