Vintage Gold Harem Ring, Ruby Opal Sapphire

Mid-century multi stone linked ring set with natural ruby, sapphire and opal gemstones in 18k.

While we are very used to modern stacking rings, their neo-classical predecessors (1810 to 1850) were in fact very influenced by the jewels of the Ottoman Empire. The latter was dissolved in the aftermath of WW1, but much European jewellery way before and up till the Edwardian period showed variations of an ideal ‘taste of the Orient’.

Like this exotic ring, such rings were set with a bevy of gemstones, in colours bold and contrasting, amidst much gold. Many older ones are set with primitively cut gemstones (or simply cut and not necessarily for shine). One would understand the focus was sometimes not the gemstones, as in this case, but the novel idea of a ring made with shanks comprising several strands of wire held together by gold slides.

This 5-ring gold harem ring was purchased at the Istanbul in the ’50s, but it could be made much earlier. There are other more recent harem rings of this style on the market, but I note this is not a single gemstone linked ring (more common) or one of those modern reproduction pieces from Turkey.

The gemstones are all earth mined and the hand craftsmanship is smoothly done.

The rings will fit a US size 7 to 7.5. If you need the ring resized, we can do so for a small fee (as this is not a straightforward resizing job).

The blue sapphires approximate 1.5ctw. The rubies approximate 1.4ctw. The opals approximate 0.7ctw.
