Bright Octagram : Vintage Diamond Star Ring by Alfred Terry Ltd of London, circa 1983

AU$550Approximately US$372

Bold and a little blingy, but oozing with vintage nous, this wide gold ring is very much in keeping with the 1980s aesthetic for androgynous luxury, adventurous styling and texture.

The ribbed texture along the sides and shoulders of the band leads to a white gold eight pointed star (ocotogram) shaped setting, holding a fine white diamond. Octograms have been important symbols throughout millenia with meanings as varied as the peoples who used them. In general eight pointed stars are believed to represent new beginnings. The points of a compass also form an octagram, which may contribute to its reputation as a guiding star.
