One of my favourite pink rings. Bought in Brasil, Rio de Janeiro in a jewelry shop on the top of the "Sugarloaf". This name was coined in the 16th century by the Portuguese during the heyday of sugar cane trade in Brazil. According to historian Vieira Fazenda, blocks of sugar were placed in conical molds made of clay to be transported on ships. The shape given by these molds was similar to the peak, hence the name.
I's a beautiful Opal stone surrounded by six round brilliants and a mark 18K (see photo) and the maker's marks AB or AS.
We were tourists from this beautiful country and enjoyed this trip a lot of years ago.It was for many years a good habit of mine proved to be a beautiful ornament of all holidays to buy. Naturally adapted to the available budget and a benevolent husband. So this ring is one of these results.
I like the standing changing colors of the opal by light. Dont't you?
