Propose With Medusa
History is rich with both treasures and lore. I love a good story. Even better when a piece of jewelry is at the heart of it. Take this antique Medusa ring. It takes a daring bride to embrace a ring such as this, as it is one of the most non-traditional engagement rings ever to be worn.
Lang Antiques is selling this piece which, besides the stunning gold band details, has a high, almost pointed, sugarloaf cabochon sapphire. Sapphires, in case you don't know, are the second most purchased gemstone behind diamonds. It's incredibly rare to find a gem like this in the cabochon set that is so high.

I think every bride should have a little medusa in her life. LOL just kidding. This is a really special piece. I was thinking too that the sapphire could easily be removed and replaced with a diamond or another stone of your choosing.

Such a fabulous idea @Ashlynn @marshalledgar, so true. Gems can easily be replaced with something different.
