This late 19th century stacked gemstone ring is commonly referred to as a "harem" ring - a moniker derived from its loose interpretation of the Turkish wedding ring or puzzle ring. The only puzzling part is how the Victorians translated Ottoman culture - which they were obsessed with - into THIS. It's not a true representation of anything truly Turkish, but a Victorian fantasy of Turkey that might make a 19th century English woman feel a tad more exotic.
