Antique Victorian Garnet and Pearl Etruscan Revival RIng in 18k Gold

He sneaked around back so she wouldn’t see him hiding the box that held a ring, a ring she gazed at so longingly through the store window months ago, a ring he pretended not to notice but then went back and bought while she shopped for flowers elsewhere, down the crowded street. He slyly crept inside their home where the fireplace blazed with warm orange flames, where she sat enthralled in a book with a glass of red wine in her left hand. He tucked the box in a loafer before leaving and entering the house again through the front door announcing, “Honey? I’m home!” 

This darling garnet and pearl cluster ring was hand crafted in the Etruscan Revival style during the Victorian period, around 1850, a time where ancient granulation techniques came back to life. Granulation is a process in which small gold beads are able to adhere to another surface due to heat, with no solder. This 18 karat gold, acid tested, ring is a fabulous example of granulation with beautiful gold beading around the entire ring. The shoulders boast floral designs, worthy of the Etruscan style. The cabochon cut garnet in the center is a deep burgundy red, measuring 3.3 x 3.3 mm. Each of the eight creamy white round pearls measure 2 mm in diameter. This ring is a wonderful size 5 and weighs 2.8 grams. It measures 11 .7 x 11.7 x 4.2 mm, with a band width of 2.2 mm. It looks like a rich red encrusted snowflake and would look like perfection on your finger! Take a mental health day and give yourself something spectacular! 

Surprise your significant other with a ring fit for a star! Or keep it for yourself since some things are just too irresistible to give up!
