Acrostic jewellery is one where gemstones are used to “spell” out a word such as can be seen here in this very attractive antique Regard ring made in 1897.
This Regard ring from the late Victorian era is made in 18ct gold and set with a Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, Ruby and a Diamond in a line design where the gemstones not only look stunning and vibrant but also graduate in size. Even the setting has so much detail with the most elegant scroll work combined with hand engraved shoulders.
Often given to a loved one, there is so much romance in many antique pieces of jewellery and acrostic jewellery such as this is certainly no exception and this ring will make a wonderful conversation starter.
Genuine antique Regard rings are becoming so increasingly hard to find, and this one is in wonderful condition which is also a testament to the jewellery that was being made over 100 years ago.
From where the gemstones start across to the other side, this distance measures 15.8mm by 6.3mm wide at the centre and feels so comfortable to wear on any finger.
This late Victorian antique Regard ring is just so elegant and combined with the romance makes it even more special.
