Jewel of the day: Workhorse Jewelry Altaira Ring

Based in Los Angeles, Workhorse Jewelry is a fine jewellery collaboration between the brand Zoë Chicco and Archive Jewelry, with vintage styling as its inspiration.

This ring, dubbed Altaira, is made with two white 7 mm cultured pearls set in oxidized sterling silver in a claw shape. As for vintage-inspired, the claw was a beloved motif in Victorian times (remember claw-footed furniture?) and it’s certainly a well-used way of holding a stone in a setting. Though in their description of the ring, Workhorse explains, “Pearls, sometimes called “teardrops of the moon”, are lunar symbols commonly associated with water & woman.  Show off your feminine side and your animal instinct with this powerful ring.”

This piece sells for USD $176.
