Exceptionally Rare Hollow Ring in 18k
Some of the different styles included a witch’s heart, with its bottom curved to one side, which was originally worn as an amulet in ancient times to protect against evil eyes and from witches stealing milk or harming newborn babies. In Scottish culture, it is called the Luckenbooth heart, and in the 18th century, the token implied that the giver had become “bewitched to fall in love” with the recipient.
This gorgeous ring is light and hollow, making it a rare find, considering ost of these have been destroyed.
