"Once in the dream of a night I stood Lone in the light of a magical wood, Soul-deep in visions that poppy-like sprang; And spirits of Truth were the birds that sang, And spirits of Love were the stars that glowed, And spirits of Peace were the streams that flowed In that magical wood in the land of sleep."
-Sarojini Naidu, poet, politician, and first female governor of an Indian state

A sparkly, all seeing diamond eye for your finger. Towards the end of the Art Deco period, the use of bright platinum and large stones in jewelry began to decline. Depression Era pieces were far more subdued and restrained, but did not lack their own unique beauty. White gold settings were used to create the illusion of larger diamonds, and were often fashioned onto yellow gold bands, giving this time period a specific two tone aesthetic. We think this ring is extra cool for the subtle appearance of an evil eye, a symbol of protection and a talisman to relinquish bad vibes.
