Heart-Shaped Tiger’s Eye and Gold Crossover Ring


Created in the 1970s, this gold twin stone crossover ring is set with cabochon hearts of tiger’s eye quartz. The “chatoyant,” or cat’s eye effect, derives from horizontally-oriented internal fibers that are echoed in the deep textural striations of the ring’s gold mount. Playful in shape and style, this unusual ring represents the experimental and fun-loving spirit of the 70s.
