SYMBOLISM or HISTORY The star is a positive symbol known all over the world. It’s a compliment to call someone a star! When an unusual star appears in the sky, it is thought to herald an important event. This ring reminds us of the star that the Three Wise Men followed in Christian lore, the Star of Bethlehem. The ancients believed that each star in the sky had its own spirit, maybe a deity, an unborn soul or the soul of a deceased person.
CONDITION Softened patina on the silver. There are two holes on the underside of the star which may indicate that this was once a brooch that was converted to a ring. The last photo is taken outdoors in natural light. No issues to note, excellent, vintage condition.
