Turkish Sterling & Brass Ring

A sterling silver ring set with an oval "ruby" (most likely glass or possibly Indian Ruby) embellished with a design of brass highlights contrasting warmly with the darker oxidized silver recesses. (When you eventually get round to polishing it use a dry "Silver Polishing Cloth" to put a shine back on the highpoints letting these recesses get darker and darker.)

This ring and the coloured "stone" seems to continue a tradition and is very similar to many older Tribal ones we have had from Iran, Afghanistan and the Caucasus. The difference is only one of age and that this is made in Sterling Silver, rather than Tribal Silver.

The flat stone with bevelled/faceted edges measures 21 mm along the finger and is 12 mm wide, and is surrounded by a fringe of small brass "tear drops" which are then echoed by a row of sterling ones.

For a very similar ring set with a rectangular stone see NT102.
