This ring was crafted at a time when pearls were only accessible to the wealthy, due to rarity and price. Finding pearls that matched in size, shape, and color could take years, as the farming of pearls wasn’t developed until the 1920s. This ring was made around 1850, and quite possibly belonged to a well-to-do Victorian woman, with a great sense of style!
This early Victorian garnet and pearl cluster ring was handcrafted in England. It is a size 7.5 and weighs 2.6 grams. It features a pretty, deep red faceted garnet that is 5 x 4.2 mm in size and is surrounded by eight half round pearls. The face measures 12.3 x 11.3 x 5.0 mm. There are no marks and it has been acid tested as 15 karat gold at the top with a 9 karat gold portion of shank, likely from be re-sized or re-shanked in the lower karat.

Curiouser and curiouser. Reminiscent of a demon with its haunting red eyes, but also suggestive of a soothsayer with its long beard and mysterious existence. It’s rings like this that capture my imagination and make me wonder the most wondrous of things. I found this interesting bauble in Amsterdam a few weeks ago. I had just polished off a toffee souffle at Vinkeles and was going for a twilight stroll when a small garden level storefront caught my eye. It didn’t take me long until I had a handful of goodies, including this intriguing charmer.

The thing I love most about Victorian jewelry is the sentiment behind each piece. To my delight, the Victorians used agate throughout the era, with its greatest popularity being the mid-1800’s. It was used to create all sorts of pieces - cut out flowers that showed off the stone’s layers, cabochons in Etruscan Revival jewelry, in cameos, in mourning jewelry, etc..
This ring was a part of this ‘need for agate’ obsession. Those suspicious Victorians believed agate protected you from thunder, sorcery, poison, and demonic possession. Basically, it was a talisman for all of life’s ailments, including drunkenness.
This Victorian agate ring was handcrafted in England around 1870. It’s an antique navette shaped ring with an agate as the star of the show, set in 15 karat white gold. The ring face measures 35 mm north to south, 7.5 mm across, and 5.5 mm off the finger. The band width narrows to 3.4 mm at the back. This ring weighs 3.5 grams and is a size 7. It bears the gold purity mark, “15ct”.
This ring might not actually contain wondrous and magical powers, but it certainly is spellbinding.
Let’s talk luxury. You might call it opulent, they might call it grand. Either way you spell it, it’s still the thing of fairy tales. It’s the kind of ring made for glamorous occasions which, as time went on, became a ring for cocktail parties which, as time went on, became a ring you wear on first dates, to meet friends from college, and to don when you just want to feel a little sumptuous. I guess it’s time for a little less talk and a little more wearing.
