"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

- Emma Lazarus, writer and poet whose work appears on the Statue of Liberty

  • 14k rose gold
  • 4mm cabochon opal
  • six rose cut diamonds
  • circa 1890s
  • currently a size 5

A tiny galaxy that you can place upon your finger, surrounded by twinkling diamond stars. The cabochon opal in this 19th century ring displays a delightful array of colors inspiring cosmic visions. During the Middle Ages, opals were considered so magical that they can can cast a spell to deem the wearer invisible. We would like to be seen wearing this beauty though. Safeguarding the opal are six small rose cut diamonds in prong settings. We love that the rose gold shoulders of this ring taper off into a slightly detailed band adding decor but still allowing the ring to be fully resized (yay!).
