Turquoise stones are considered a symbol of friendship and were once said to bring good fortune to the wearer. The stone has also long being associated with the Forget me not.
"Forget-me-not, O Lord!" is what a poor German knight shouted as he fell into a river. He and his lady were picking flowers by the side of the river at the time when the poor knight suddenly fell in and sank to the bottom. Upon his cries to the Lord, he threw the blue posy of flowers to his loved one. Hence, the concept of remembrance, eternal love and faithfulness grow from this.
The stones are set in a closed backed 18ct Yellow Gold gallery which is typical of the Georgian era.
A lovely, regal ring which would make a magnificent statement piece!
