“Where there is perfection there is no story to tell,” says Nigerian poet, Ben Okri.
I am always drawn to and find immense beauty in the imperfection of gems. Each rough edge, inclusion and colour variation tells a million stories. I see them as being tiny messages from the earth. This couldn’t be truer for this ring. With its organic texture and imperfections just as Mother Earth created, this turquoise ring displays a pattern that resembles a world map, Mappamondo in Italian. A world in a ring, befitting the appreciation for this gemstone by cultures all over the world for more than 5,000 years.
