This exquisite ring features an ornate dragon carved in yellow gold on the top, accented by a round bezel set diamond. A book and a key are also carved in yellow gold on the shoulders of the oxidized sterling silver band, and this, in turn, is engraved with a complementary pattern. It’s a striking example of the types of pieces you’ll find in our Galatea collection here at Joseph Jewelry, and you can view or try it on anytime you stop by our Bellevue, WA showroom.
Carved Yellow Gold and Diamond Accent
On the top of this ring is a flat, round surface that holds an ornate image of a dragon carved from 14k yellow gold. The head of the dragon appears in profile just below the center of the circle, and its body extends downward from there before curling back around and up to wrap around above the head.
Just in front of the dragon’s mouth is a 0.05 carat round diamond that’s bezel set in yellow gold as well, and this setting is also gripped by the end of the tail as it curls around. The inclusion of the diamond gives the design a hint of glamorous flair, and it adds another layer of contrast with the warm tones of the metal it’s set in, as well as with the black of the ring itself.

Ring Design and Engraving
Moving down from the round top surface of the ring, the shank shoulders begin a dramatic taper that ends about half-way down each side. The top of the band is rounded, and it’s made of sterling silver that’s oxidized to create a deep black color. The band of the ring is also engraved with a flame and scales motif that complements the dragon design on the top and creates a connection between the two sections of the ring.
Carved yellow gold accents also sit on each shank shoulder, centered just below the edge of the flat top section. On one side, this yellow gold is in the shape of an open book, while a key sits on the other. These bring added meaning to the design, as well as a reinforcement of the contrast between the two main elements used in the ring.
