Volo d'Angelo ring in silver set with four facetted sky blue topaz. The Cathedral and cloisters of Mon Reale, Palermo, built by Roger II of Sicily are a masterpiece. Arriving at the cathedral door from the main square, the beautifully designed wrought ironwork protects the Loggia. Composed of endless circles and floral details, it seems as a 'Volo d'Angelo' - a flight of angels. From the Journey to Sicily.
The face of the ring measures approximately 10mm in diameter.

Waking early, I went up to Monreale, the beautiful Norman cathedral on the hill above Palmero. As I stepped out onto the piazza, the cathedral stood triumphant. Before the doors opened, I walked up and down past the railings outside that were decorated with a series of circles with winged tips where the circles met. Imagining a flight of angels, my Volo d'Angelo was thought up. In my Volo d'Angelo jewels I set lapis lazuli, garnets and diamonds where the circles joined in necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
Topaz is an aluminium fluoro-hydroxyl-silicate that occurs in large crystals, mostly in Brazil. Glowing with the gift of healing, a blue topaz (the birthstone for November) is said to help your mind and body feel restored, a symbol of friendship, love, honesty, and fidelity. While a golden yellow topaz, permeated with healing warmth and life like the dazzling sun, will rejuvenate both your mind and body. Highly protective, the magic set within these stones is believed to make the wearer invisible to danger.
