Pale Blue Ceramic Fleur-de-lis Adjustable Ring

Ceramic Fleur-de-lis Adjustable Ring

An antique button with the fleur-de-lis was used to make the mold that created this delicate looking ceramic ring. The ceramic portion has been glazed a pale blue color and was mounted on an adjustable ring base.  

The fleur-de-lis, translated from French as "lily flower", is a stylized design of either an iris or a lily that is now used purely decoratively as well as symbolically, or it may be at one and the same time political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic and symbolic, especially in heraldry. 

More photos of this ring may be seen in my Good Dirt Jewelry shop.
