These rings were made and sold in Naples in the 1820s as tourist trinkets. They are set with different coloured lava sourced from Versuvius and carved coral from the sea bed nearby. The tourists on “The Grand Tour” bought them and brought them back to England. This ring has come from a family in Scotland.
