Antique Double Heart Diamond Pearl Ring Hallmarked 1870

Heart symbolism soared during the Georgian Era, and continued to be a regular motif under the reign of the trend-setter, Queen Victoria. Her dear Prince Albert gifted her a heart locket, prior to their wedding, with a lock of his hair inside. It is rumored that this was one of her most prized possessions. And anything the Queen loved, the rest of the West did, too. Couples used the double heart as a betrothal icon as it meant that two hearts were bound together as one. The intertwining hearts created a loop, with no beginning or end, represented a love meant for eternity.

This antique Victorian double heart ring holds both diamonds and pearls, and was handcrafted in 1870, in Birmingham, England. This double heart motif is made of nine rose cut diamonds and six pearls. The first heart is bordered in shiny pearls, with the center holding a winking diamond. The second heart is just the opposite, as it is framed in diamonds with a pearl at the center. This ring is fully hallmarked and bears the letter ‘v’, for the year, an anchor for Birmingham, and the gold purity content marks, ‘15’, and ‘.625’. It also has a maker’s mark that reads, ‘AA’. The face measures 9 x 11.6 x 3.3 mm off the finger. It is a size 6.5 and weighs 2.7 grams.

This ring is truly a Victorian treasure, with a classic design rich in meaning and meant for love.
