    Designed to capture classic elements of Egyptian and Greek styling, this simple yet stunning ring features an antique Murano glass bead centered on a 22K gold band with etched styling along its edge. This ring can be worn on any finger alone or paired with other rings. Size 7.25. Complimentary sizing available for most ring sizes.

    “This antique Muano glass bead was made in the 1940’s by a small family run business in Italy that is still making murano glass beads today. Time has created a “matte” patina, that has given it the appearance of clay or some material other than glass.” — Loren Nicole

     


     

    Loren began her career in archaeology working on numerous digs in Central and South America researching ancient civilizations of northern Peru and then as a conservator for ancient and ethnographic textiles at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Met) in New York City. It was there where what began as a curiosity to better understand objects of the past, developed into a passion for ancient metalsmithing that ultimately eclipsed her academic interests and resulted in the launch of her inaugural collection in Summer 2016.

    Her love of the past and studied approach continues to be visible in her work, whether through researching museum collections of ancient chains to experimenting and perfecting her approach to chain making, or by employing the 3500 year old technique of granulation.

     

    We love the unique character of this simple ring and how the gold etching appropriately adds further importance to the ring’s beautiful antique bead.
