About the Item

This one-of-a-kind ring was inspired by Empress Wu, a 7th century ruler of China. She was the only female ruler of China to refer to herself as “Emperor” during her reign — historians changed it to “Empress” later. She was labeled a “Dragon Lady,” as are many powerful women. With this one-of-a-kind ring, Wendy turned the pejorative term into a work of ferocious beauty. Globe spins in dragon's mouth. Approx. 25 grams 18K yellow gold, satin finish. Custom-cut lapis lazuli (globe). Diamond accents. Black rhodium detail. As seen on supermodel Bella Hadid for Paper Magazine.
