Early 1900s Glass Scarab Ring, 10K Gold, Inscribed “12/18 All alone" $425
The inscription reads “12/18  All alone;” the numbers are ostensibly for December of 1918. The “all alone” is so intriguing. Maybe an inside joke between the giver and the receiver. But there’s something about the combination of the scarab’s symbolism of rebirth and the existential message inside that suggests something weightier and more peculiar. But we’ll never know what it means, which is why I love finding jewelry with odd old inscriptions— you have to make your own meaning.

1920s Art Deco Lapis Lazuli Ring, 14K Yellow Gold, $1350
Look how amazing this mounting is. Every ring gallery should be built like this. Also, it’s one of the nicest pieces of lapis I’ve ever seen in a ring.
