I THIS PRODUCT ADD TO WISHLIST

The central point of this unusual ring is an ancient bronze coin with a Medusa face detail.  It is mounted in an organic 18 carat yellow gold mount with 3 asymmetrically positioned natural rubies.  This ring was made circa 1970-1980.

The Medusa iconography is well known from Greek mythology, symbolizing the wild woman and the feminine power, diminished by her defeat at the hands of Perseus.  Despite her death, the head of Medusa still retained the power over life and death.

The shank of this ring has a branch-like texture and is marked 18K for American manufacture and 18 carat gold.  Currently a size M.5 (US 6.5).

Emerald Necklace - ShinyPrettyThings

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the beautiful necklace ShinyPrettyThings obtained for Ellie. She was so thrilled with it and I just know it will be precious to her always. The colour is so vivid and she was so thrilled to open it.

Elizabeth Madden
Pearl Ruby Diamond Earrings - ShinyPrettyThings

Over the past year or so ShinyPrettyThings has carefully assembled a beautiful collection of Jewellery pieces for me. Predominately rings and necklaces, each piece has been carefully chosen with my personal taste in mind. I like delicate details and period design, Georgian, early Victorian and a little Art Deco…this is just what ShinyPrettyThings has found for me. I love my new ruby and diamond pearl drop earrings that were so cleverly sourced to tie in with my other pieces. ShinyPrettyThings brings wonderful customer service and immense knowledge and attention to detail to each commission.
