Lovely Victorian alternating ruby and old cut diamond twin line ring formed of 18ct yellow gold; Containing approximately 0.30cts of diamonds and an equal weight of rubies.
The Victorian era, so named after the English monarch at the time, Queen Victoria, was an innovative period in jewelry design due to technological advancements during this time. With the availability of electricity and electric lighting goldsmiths could work in better conditions and stone cutting and setting became a lot less laborious with the help of specialized equipment. Looking back at the history of jewelry the changing styles from Georgian, to Victorian and into Edwardian and Art Deco are each so distinct and so reflective of the times in which they were in. In this way owning a unique ring from these years has a beauty that goes beyond simply the aesthetics, knowing the craftsmanship and detail that went into each piece brings it alive in the way modern conveyor jewelry can’t.
With greater numbers of people seeking sustainable jewelry and loving antique pieces, most jewelry from before the 1920’s is growing in popularity and thus increasing their rarity.
This ring is a UK ring size R. Please enquire about resizing.
