La Luna Pearl Ring —
Quali per vetri trasparenti e tersi,
o ver per acque nitide e tranquille,
non sì profonde che i fondi sien persi,
tornan d'i nostri visi le postille
debili sì, che perla in bianca fronte
non vien men forte a le nostre pupille;
Paradiso, canto ii, lines 10-15
La Luna Pearl Ring is inspired by the second canto of Dante's 'Paradiso', where he enters the realm of the Moon. All is dewy and magical. As through "clear,transparent glass", the poet sees the outlines of faces, eager to speak, and glimmering so bright, that they can barely be seen. He describes their outlines, being as faint as "a pearl on a pallid forehead".
La Luna Ring is cast in 24 karat gold plated bronze; it encases a marble, or black onyx pearl.
