NEW version of my all-time most popular ring! Antique Style Victorian Edwardian Art Nouveau exquisite deep aqua blue/sea green glass fire opal, aquamarine rhinestones & ivory glass pearls MERMAIDS "statement" ring---a fabulous ring using some wonderful vintage stones, plus a beautiful fantasy/ocean theme of tiny mermaids...This one is only very slightly different than the last one I had offered; was able to find some new side accent stones that are fabulous old-stock vintage Czech beauties in the exact size I needed, so I have brought this back after many requests---So many of you have asked for more of my mermaid rings, in particular the first one I created which was a fabulous, aquamarine and sea green glass fireopal in a smaller size; it sold out very quickly about three years ago and since then I'd searched and searched for more of the rare & gorgeous central stones with no luck; I unfortunately had to disappoint quite a few people who wrote to me pleading for one like those first rings as I simply couldn't find the right stones---but I was so elated & excited to finally find another very small cache of those exact same color vintage stones for this one, in a 3X larger size than the original version was---so have brought it back for a VERY limited time once again (only as long as this cache of stones lasts!) and it's been phenomenally popular....This one is ENORMOUS! The center stone is about three times the size of my previous smaller mermaid ring stones---and the color is a gorgeous, rich true greenish aquamarine, rather like the waters just off the Riviera Maya/Cancun...The fire opal glass center stone glows with wonderful gold, green and turquoise flecks within, as if looking down through blue-green tropical water--plus the side pieces are exquisite little detailed brass filigree mermaids. As you turn the ring and the light hits it differently, the ring can look more green or more aqua....just magnificent at all angles. This, like all my others, has been a very limited edition ring--the first versions of this ring all sold out almost immediately after listing. This ring is nearly identical to the most recent one I had listed, the only actual difference is the shape of the side stones which are marquise/navette shaped instead of half moon shaped like the previous version and a little more vivid aquamarine color than the previous stones....they are VERY sparkly and gorgeous!
PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY before asking questions! All details about sizing, etc. are addressed here, so it's very important to READ all of this...thank you :-) ALSO PLEASE NOTE that this is a made to order item, so there is generally a four to six week completion time before shipment as each one is individually hand made by me---if the waiting time presents a problem for you please do not purchase!

I designed and put together this beautiful and elaborate Victorian/Edwardian style ring using mostly vintage components and hand finished/burnished brass parts & filigree. As a long-time antique clothing and jewelry collector, I'm inspired to create antique/vintage-style jewelry that has the superb old elements and rare vintage glass stones I have gathered over the years....All of the pieces I do are individually handmade and incorporate as many of the antique elements as possible, plus durable yet authentic brass fittings that I have hand finished with that "aged" look.
I must take a moment to say THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who've become fans of my work...I love to know that my pieces inspire and delight others and am so appreciative of your wonderful encouragement. :-) Am also very proud to have created the jewelry for America's Got Talent finalist and extraordinary performer, Prince Poppycock, for his last four performances on NBC's AGT during August and September, 2010!

This exquisite ring is fashioned from vintage very substantial burnished rich solid brass parts patterned with intricate antique designs, with a rare exquisite very large oval vintage glass rich aquamarine/sea green-blue fire opal stone in the center.... This is framed & enclosed by a beautiful vintage intricate filigree setting, flanked by two absolutely wonderful tiny brass filigree mermaids with arms upheld combing their tresses and holding hand mirrors--these are SO detailed they have to be seen to be believed! The ring is further augmented by round glass ivory pearls, four vivid and very sparkly marquise/navette shaped faceted aquamarine stones, two vintage AB rhinestones set in brass settings, and many tiny glittering round aquamarine rhinestones set in brass scattered throughout the design.....making it look as if the mermaids are surrounded by sparkling tropical water! The fabulous (and unusual) glass center stone has magnificent iridescent flecks of vivid fire dancing within the glass. and the aquamarine glass rhinestones echo this perfectly---This ring is so fabulous in the sunlight... All vintage stones, that are wonderfully colored.....This ring is open in the back, and therefore is adjustable from about a size 5 upwards (it fits around the finger in the same manner as a cuff bracelet does on a wrist)...this can be done by simple stretching of the back to fit the individual finger. IF YOU NEED a size above an 8.5 I will add extra brass to the ring to make it fit that size range comfortably, before shipping. Whatever your size requirement, please state when purchasing, what size you would like the ring preadjusted to.
Since it's extremely imposing and reaches quite well past the knuckle on most hands, this would be great worn on the middle or first finger....This is quite a substantial and large scale ring, so if you have very small hands, please consider how & if it will suit you---I won't be responsible for it "looking too big" on you, nor do I accept returns or do exchanges.
FABULOUS vintage glass stones....All centered on fine layered detailed brass filigree which has such a wonderfully and truly antique look to it. Measures just about 1 -3/4" from top to bottom at the frontspiece. The stones & findings are all wonderfully unique & vintage, and come from my ever-growing stock of fine antique and vintage beauties---am always searching for gorgeous old elements to recreate that fabulous old antique look....Very comfortable & substantial on, and I always "test run" my jewelry to make sure it's very durable and sturdy....this one is a great addition to any vintage and antique lover's costume jewelry collection...
