This gold ring was designed by me and handmade by the craftsmen of my shop, SERRA, opened in Rome in 1910 and located in via Margutta 57 , in the historic center of the city, very close to the Spanish Steps! .
The figure, in this gold ring ,is a Fortuna that has a Cornucopia in the right hand, while holding the rudder with the other.
Fortuna takes its name from the Greek divinity, Tyche, personification of luck in Roman religion who, largely thanks to the Late Antique author Boethius, remained popular through the Middle Ages until at least the Renaissance.
Fortuna is often depicted with a gubernaculum (ship's rudder), a ball or Rota Fortunae (wheel of fortune, first mentioned by Cicero) and a cornucopia (horn of plenty).
All of our jewels are certified by certificate of authenticity attesting their Greek or Roman origin !
