Simple, handmade 14K gold banded ring with gold disc at the top that has a .03 carat diamond embedded in the middle. This piece is inspired by an antique child's ring from the 14th century that had star-shaped points radiating from a central gem.
The "Gypsy Setting" of this ring is inspired by the historical reference rich merchants' wives centuries ago, who were afraid to travel through the countryside while wearing their piles of jewelry, because gypsies would come along and snatch stones right from their settings. A smart lady asked her jeweler to set her diamond deep down in the ring, with no prongs, so it was flush with the metal and therefore thief-proof.
