This riotously colorful gemstone ring dates to around 1800. It's in fantastic condition. Around the same time it was made, Alessandro Volta constructed a "voltaic pile", later known as the electric battery. In fashion, the empire waist was the THING. Bach and Beethoven were intensely banging on pianos. Morphine was successfully isolated from opium and was marketed as its own medicinal product. Our little jewel has survived a lot of change.
