Edwardian Diamond Emerald Gold Bypass Ring

You could present it to her as the sun is setting in May, while the flowers are closing to go to sleep, as you sit on the back porch. Or you could give it to her on her birthday, hide it inside her usual morning coffee mug, making sure she doesn’t pour coffee over it first. Maybe you should save it for Christmas morning, leave it in her stocking, wait for her to find it, and anticipate that wide-eyed look and delightful smile. 

Gold swirls around two light-catching diamonds and a mesmerizing emerald, creating a bypass ring design. This ring shape was most used during the Victorian Era, as its meaning is of two souls coming together in love and eternity. This piece was made in 1910, during the very end of the Edwardian Era, and is marked with the letter date code, ‘l’. It bears the marks for Birmingham, England, and 18 karat gold: the crown and anchor, and the number, ‘18’. It also has a maker’s mark which has faded over time. The two diamonds surround the center emerald, one measures 2.7 mm in diameter and is 1.6 mm deep. The other diamond is 2.3 mm in diameter and is 1.5 mm deep. As for the emerald, the stone of luck and love, measures 3.3 mm in diameter and is 2.1 mm deep. This ring is a size 6.5 and weighs 3.0 grams. 

In any which way you choose, this antique ring longs to be gifted to her. It’s just her style and just her taste.
