This is such a delightful antique ring from the late Victorian era of the 1890’s and one that looks so divine and elegant on the finger and is destined to be admired. Made in 15ct gold, the ring is made in a wonderful lozenge shape that accentuate the finger so well and is set with 14 seed pearls, 3 pieces of turquoise and highlighted with two diamonds.
Typical of so many antique rings of this period, the diamonds are there to highlight the ring and not to take away from the wonderful attractive turquoise and pearls.
From left to right to the very side of the turquoise, the ring measures 12mm across or 8.2mm wide at the centre of the lozenge shape by 15mm in length. Even the band of the ring is so charming with carved design at the top where the extra piece of turquoise is and adds so much character to an already delightful antique ring.
The colour of the turquoise and pearls is so wonderful and the two diamonds really do add just the right amount of sparkle that doesn’t detract from the charm of the other stones and the shape of the ring.
This is such an attractive example of a genuine antique ring from the Victorian era and, and one that will always be cherished and admired thanks to its wonderful shape and combination of lovely natural gemstones.
