A Ring with a Garnet

 

 

A ring with scrollwork shoulders. I love the scrolls that the Italians put all over their buildings and fountains and monuments. They have, for me, the symbolism of potential, of the uncurling bud, and as decorative elements they give a nice bouncy line, as the Baroque artists knew well.
