The term ‘bewitched’ dates to the 1200s, but it wasn’t until some 300 years later that the meaning changed from a fearful term with an implication of harm to the more figurative sense of charming someone, enchanting them with delightful attraction. The Victorians, with their love of all things figural, created wonderful witches heart jewelry, usually in the form of brooches and sometimes pendants, but this is the first time I’ve ever stumbled upon a witches heart ring, and I have to say that this one bewitched me instantly.
Hand crafted in 18 karat gold, this English beauty was made around 1880. It is set with a lovely Old European cut center diamond which weighs about .4 carats, surrounded by an additional 9 old cut diamonds which add up to about a further .92 carats, for a total approximate diamond weight of 1.32 carats. The center stone has a distinctly golden hue, while the surrounding stones are well matched and very white, all of the stones are very sparkly, clean, and beautifully hand cut. The ring measures 12 mm north to south and 10.3 mm across, it sits 8 mm off the finger and narrows to 4 mm at the back of the band. This ring is marked ’18’ for the gold content and bears the makers mark of ‘E.C.’, it is a size 8.25 and weighs 4.7 grams.
Have you been bewitched? This fantastic and unusual ring would make an absolutely stunning and unique engagement ring!
