ABOUT THIS RING

Dresses in the Victorian era were elaborate affairs, sartorial works of art often including bustles, ruffles, lace, and all sorts of trimmings. As this striking and intricately crafted ring proves, Victorian jewelry often had the same level of layered design and embellishment. Hand fabricated in darkened silver over 14K gold that forms an exquisite openwork cushioned-shaped dome, the ring glows with vivid color courtesy of five deep green emerald-cut emeralds (together weighing 2.06 carats) in rose gold bezel settings, and glimmers with trios of rose cut diamonds. The under gallery is a masterpiece of gracefully curving scrolls and the shoulders of the distinctive and beautifully hand-engraved shank are adorned with a lace-like overlay of decorative swirls. Magnificent! Total diamond weight, .70 carat. Currently ring size 5 1/4. Condition note: The emeralds show some wear commensurate with the age of this 19th century treasure.

About Victorian Jewelry

The eclectic Victorians didn’t limit themselves when it came to motifs and themes—if it struck their fancy, they turned it into jewelry. Sweet and sentimental with a distinct romantic streak, Victorian gems expanded upon their Georgian predecessors. The array of styles that blossomed (sometimes quite literally) during this era endure to this day.

Jewelry Care

As with anything of value, especially sentimental value, taking good care of your vintage and antique jewelry from Lang will enhance its beauty and extend its lifespan. We encourage you to have your jewelry checked and cleaned by us or by your trusted local jeweler every six months, to ensure that each piece is in good wearable condition with all gemstones in place. It’s not uncommon for stones to loosen over time, and it’s much easier to tighten a loose stone than to replace a lost one! As stated in our Repair Policy, we strongly recommend that you allow us to perform any repairs, since our jewelers are specialists in restoring vintage and antique jewelry.
