SOLD Vintage 18kt Gold Turquoise & Diamond Harem Ring
A beautiful and striking ring from the middle of the 20th Century, c1960s/70s. The ring is made from 18kt gold and is an example of a 'harem ring'. These rings are traditionally Turkish and were an alternative type of wedding ring. The word 'harem' is a derivative of the Turkish word 'haram' meaning forbidden or sacred place.
