The ring showing the Greek god Hermes with his kerykeion (caduceus) staff would be so appropriate for a doctor. 

Hermes, also recognisable by his winged headwear, was known to the Romans as Mercury. Admired for his mischief and tricks, he was also a herald and messenger.

He was a son of Zeus and the god of travel, commerce, wealth, luck, fertility, sleep, language and thieves.

The glowing moonstone has been finely carved and is set in 18-carat gold.
