Jewel made entirely by hand by the Italian craftsman Gianmarco Fontana. Ring made of 925 Silver, which is part of the "SPECIAL" collection depicting a Gargoyle.

The gargoyle, the English equivalent of the Italian word gargoyle, is that monstrous stone creature that protrudes from the top of the Gothic cathedrals, in thick and threatening company with its fellow men.
Legend has it that gargoyles can come to life to defend their church when some malicious person approaches it, but in reality they usually perform a much humbler task: in fact they serve to direct the flow of rainwater from the gutters to the ground, preventing that the facade and walls of the cathedral are constantly wet and therefore wear out.
Inside the gargoyles are hidden iron pipes that act as drains and connect the gutter to the opening of the animal's mouth: in this way, in case of rain, copious streams of water are poured onto the ground right from its jaws open wide.
