Lalaounis Hellenistic Gold Ring
ABOUT THIS RING
Renowned for creating luxurious jewelry in gold--which he called 'the most human material'-- famed Greek jewelry designer Ilias Lalounis's creations included everything from mythical creatures to stunning sculptural pieces such as this ring. Crafted in luminous 18K gold, the jewel's ribbed and steeply slanted shoulders rise to meet a gleaming sphere, embracing it with ornamental bands accented by delicate scrolls and granulation. Consider it your personal Greek masterpiece. Currently ring size 7. To prevent wrist envy, we have a matching bracelet: 40-1-11527.
