Description
This charming 18 karat yellow gold ring was made in the 1930s, after an ancient Roman original.

The name of this generally translucent variety of chalcedony comes from the Latin word for flesh, for that is what its warm reddish tones reminded the Romans of. Since earliest times, carnelian has been prized for its rich, radiant color like the heart of a glowing fire. As an amulet, carnelian is favored to act on the blood, preventing it from rushing in excess to the head, stopping smoothly throughout the body. It is believed to make the skin healthy and youthful, removing sores and blemishes when worn, because of its calming effects on the blood, carnelian also makes one feel peaceful and slow to anger. It is theorized that the color orange is the harmonious balance of passionate, creative red and bright, cheerful yellow, which makes it particularly soothing to wear. Carnelian is the perfect stone to achieve that blissful state of balance. - (FJ.0471)
