This ring from the Margherita collection was inspired by the ring that Enrico Grassi Damiani dedicated to Queen Margherita in the early 1900s; the daisies seem to ‘dance’ in harmony in stones such as diamonds and white gold, in rose gold, brown diamonds and amethyst, and in yellow gold, diamonds and citrine quartz.
