Dated to the late 19th century, this silver charm ring was crafted by the Miao peoples of the Guizhou province and was believed to protect the wearer from bad luck and malevolent spirits. The ring is decorated in relief with a round gourd and a butterfly, surrounded by leaves and small flowers. This motif of a butterfly and a gourd or melon was popular during the Qing dynasty and conveys blessings for a large family with many sons. A short chain hangs from the face of the ring, ending in a small repoussé charm of a pomegranate.

Ring band is adjustable. All jewelry sales are final. No refunds or exchanges.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
