According to Greek mythology, all roses where white before Aphrodite bled on them, while mourning her dying lover, Adonis the hunter.
This ring is named Blood of Aphrodite, and will be cast in white and rose gold. The blood red stone is an untreated precision cut natural ruby.
This photo shows the white wax model I hand sculpted. Twigs, leaves and little rose buds, with tiny droplets representing her tears and blood.
