Antique Victorian Amethyst, Emerald and Pearl Ring in 18k Gold, Hallmarked 1860

Blue, red, and green string lights lining white picket fences are slowly covered in snowflakes. If you close your eyes you can hear the silver bells, you can smell the pecan pie, you can taste the eggnog. Trees made of twisted branches are covered in tiny white lanterns and Santa sits on the other side of the store window, visible through the yellow glow of fluorescent light hitting the sidewalks. It’s that time of year when you wear your favorite cloche hat and golden Mary Jane shoes. It’s that time of year when he surprises you with a ring, the ring you’ve dreamed of since you laid eyes on him 2 years ago. He slips it on your finger as you say, “Yes!” 

This darling Victorian ring was hand crafted in Birmingham, England in 1860 of 18 karat gold. Cabochon cut, oval, eggplant colored amethysts, two in all, are the true stars of this show! They hold a deep violet shade that I just can’t get out of my head! Between the amethysts are two round half pearls that shine bright. Amongst the face and shoulders of this ring are six faceted emeralds, gleaming a glorious forest green. The shoulders and sides of the ring are engraved with ornate design, adding the perfect amount of detail. 

This piece is fully hallmarked. It contains the letter year code, ‘L’, indicating it was made in 1860. There is a crown, meaning English origin, and there is an anchor, meaning the Birmingham Assay Office. It’s also marked with the number ‘18’ meaning a gold purity content of 18 karats. This ring is a lovely size 6.5 and weighs 1.8 grams. It measures 7.2 x 14.8 x 3 mm with a band width of 2 mm. 

Make this year special with this darling Victorian ring! Covered with precious jewels, you might as well give it to that precious someone!
