In stylistic reference, this ring belongs to a genre colloquially known as "puzzle ring" or "Turkish bridal ring," loosely described as a group of up to 12 stacked bands, each fitting in a unique way into another member of the stack. In these traditional historic designs, once taken off, the rings represented a vertical jewelry puzzle to reassemble.
