Striking, gorgeous and elegant. This statement piece is a head turner.

This gorgeous ring was named after 17th century Baroque Painter, Artemisia Gentileschi who was the most important female painter of her time and was the first woman to attend the Accademia di Arte del Disegno in Florence. She was also known for her very public rape trial in 1612 against her teacher where during the trial, it was she who was tortured by the court to prove her allegation and innocence. After the trial she channeled repression, injustice and rape into her paintings as a cry for oppressed women, making her a Feminist Hero for her time.
