$400.00
About Details Inspiration

In the V&A Museum's jewelry collection, there's a child's ring from the 14th century that looks a lot like this one, with star-shaped points radiating from a central gem.  Inscribed inside are words "This Spark Will Grow", which is a lovely sentiment of hope for the beginning of a life or journey.  Wouldn't this be a lovely "promise ring" or starter engagement ring? If you think promise rings are stupid, you can just wear this as part of your ring stack.

    There's another (possibly apocryphal) historical reference here: centuries ago, rich merchants' wives were afraid to travel through the countryside while wearing their piles of jewelry, because gypsies would come along and snatch stones right from their settings.  A smart lady asked her jeweler to set her diamond deep down in the ring, with no prongs, so it was flush with the metal and therefore thief-proof.  Voila!  The "gypsy setting" was invented.
