Majestic, statement, lapis and granulation work Rajasthani ring
We'll admit- while we're all about pared-down aesthetics, coming from a culture where often more is more, a Maharani-Esque ring like this does have its appeal.
Not for the shy, this is a big ring- it's heavy, it's majestic and it calls for attention. Of recent make though using age-old traditional granulation technique, the use of lapis, instead of traditional colors in stones, gives this ring a familiar yet exotic look. If a statement ring is what you're looking for, you won't go wrong with this stunner!

Please note: (1) All the jewelry in this collection is vintage, and thus neither new nor in mint condition. Wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, etc. are in keeping with the age of the jewelry.
(2) All the jewelry has been gently cleaned to remove surface dirt and oils but not the patina- which in our view adds immensely to the appeal of vintage pieces. While in great condition (none of the jewelry is broken/chipped/in need of repair), all were previously owned by someone else, and while not perfect each is full of old history and charm. Please use accompanying photographs to make your decision and be sure to ask any questions you may have before purchase.
(3) It is also worth reminding that since the jewelry is shot in close-up mode, the pieces may look bigger than the actual size. Conversely, some large pieces may look smaller in pictures. Always refer to the mentioned dimensions.
