Antique Victorian Navette Shaped Coral Ring in 14k Gold

For centuries, coral was believed to protect the wearer, from evil, from sickness, and from pain. During the Georgian Era, coral was typically filed smooth and strung onto a necklace. Children of means would often wear a coral necklace, given to them from a loved one, to keep them safe. Of course, coral, especially red coral – the rarest and most expensive – was also fashionable. Jane Harley, the Countess of Oxford, who lived during the time this ring was made, wore a string of red coral around her neck. It was in vogue for the rich and the powerful. And honestly, I’m not convinced it ever went out of style! 

This antique European faceted coral ring was handcrafted around 1890. It was made in 14 karat gold. This ring holds a beautiful orange marquis coral that measures 20 x 9 mm. The band width is 3.0 mm. The face if this ring measures 24.9 x 13 x 5.6 mm. This piece is hallmarked on the outside and has been acid tested. It is a size 5.75 and weighs 4.3 grams. 

Wear this beautiful red coral ring and ward off danger at every turn, and get wonderful compliments along the way!
