Owls have been a symbol of wisdom for thousands of years. Athena, goddess of wisdom and strategy, had an owl sit on her blind side in order to see the whole truth. Owls have prevailed as an icon of intellect– it's no wonder that we see one so beautifully carved in this gorgeous 10k gold 1933 class ring! It sits on a red ruby whose minimally facetted cut makes for a vibrant yet subtle backdrop. Though it has all of the same attributes as a natural ruby, it was synthetically produced– a relatively new and fashionable technology at the time. Carved on the inside are the initials 'N.L.' The ring is currently a size 7 1/2 and may be resized up or down upon request.
