Korinsia Ring


This stunningly ornate ring is based on an incredible gold and onyx original dating to the Mycenaean period (c. 1400 - 1100 BC), found near the palace at Knossos. Here, a line of luxurious golden circles wraps the finger, situated between bands of gold that terminate in decorative volutes in the front, which frame the central cabochon stone held in a delicate bezel setting.

Our ring is available in sizes 4 - 10, and with the following stone choices: Purple Amethyst, Red Garnet, and Black Onyx. Please state your choice of stone in the Special Instructions area of this page.

"Korinsia" is an adjective formed from the location of "Korinthos" or "Corinth," in Greece. It was a female name in Mycenaean times, as attested in the Linear B tablets from Pylos, which mention a certain Korinsia, likely a priestess, who independently leased her own plot of land, and held a certain amount of wheat.
