L'Inferno Ring | Garnet —
In su l'estremita d'un'alta ripa
che facevan gran pietre rotte in cerchio,
venimmo sopra piu crudele stipa;
Inferno, canto xi, lines 1-3
The inferno is a dark, decrepit place. It bears the shape of a cone, the cliffs get steeper, and the circles become more wretched the further down Dante goes. The landscape is scraggy, of 'broken rocks', and referred to as 'l profondo abisso' - the profound abyss. The Inferno ring is inspired by this darkness, and melancholy. Like the Inferno, it is shaped like a cone; the garnet glimmers with a sense of mystery and danger- representing a place that is impossible to escape.
The Inferno Ring is 24 karat gold plated bronze; it encases a garnet.
