Etched gold harem ring--looking for more information.
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 01-16-11 , 12:23 AM


I inherited this gold ring from my mom, whose dad bought it for her when he was in Vietnam. Does anybody have any information about this style or where I can find more rings like this?

I've googled things like "harem ring" & "etched ring," and I've asked around at so many jewelry stores, but no one seems to know what direction to point me in.

are those separate rings held together by that piece in the back?
What reason do you have for attaching "harem" to this design?

It is 5 separate rings banded together vertically in the back. Honestly, the only reason I call it a harem ring because that's what my mom & her mom (who also has one with 7 bands) called them. I guess it's just a reference to the fact that it's comprised of multiple rings, because if you google "harem ring" the results show similar rings, but with stones in them instead of etchings.

Also, I don't know if this is relevant, but my mom's dad bought them when he was in Vietnam.
