Known as 'Nop-pa-kao' or 'nine gem rings', these Thai Princess Harem rings are a traditional style in the shape of an exotic rising flower with three rows of gemstones, in this case pear-cut Tiger's Eye, Emerald, Rose Quartz, Garnet, Citrine, Sapphire, Ruby, Turquoise, Coral and Moonstone encircling the high domed centre which is ornamented with sparkly white Sapphires. Circa 1940's/50's these rings were skilfully hand made by locals in a multitude of different local gemstones and were often brought back as souvenirs for their sweethearts by soldiers on tour in Thailand after WW2 as a splendidly eye-catching cocktail ring.
The amazing structure is all hand made with a 14ct yellow gold band and white gold setting to the gems. We can adjust the size to fit, it's currently an 'N/6.5/13/53'.
