This unique piece had a previous life in Italy.
The story: traditionally, rings with several bands attached with a bar and set with precious stones are called Harem or Turkish rings. Their origin dates back to the Ottoman Empire, where the sultans would offer this jewel to their favorite. Many legends exist around this style, including a tale that a jealous Turkish king gave this intricate ring to his wife so that she would not have time to put back all the rings if she was caught during adultery. The harem-style ring was made popular again during the nineteenth century with the Orientalist movement.
