$ 1,800.00

R E G A R D. To watch, to see, to consider a person and hold a fondness for them. In our culture, we have recently begun to understand that people need to feel ‘seen’ in relationships in order to experience security. Believe it or not, people in the Victorian Era were already on to this.

R is for Ruby, E for Emerald, G for Garnet, A for Amethyst, another Ruby, and then Diamond for D. Using gems to spell out a message was fairly common and the resultant jewels are called ‘achrostic’ jewelry. Friends and lovers gave each other gifts of jewelry bearing the message that the wearer was seen and loved. This darling Victorian REGARD ring displays this colorful sentiment set in a band of 18k gold. A second row of bright seed pearls, symbolizing innocence or purity, echos the line of stones, providing wonderful contrast and interest. Made in 1890, it’s possible that this lovely ring was originally a gift from one bosom friend to another; or, given that pearls were often bestowed upon new brides, it may have been a wedding gift from an earnest soon-to-be groom to his betrothed. This graceful, expressive ring still carries that sense of fondness, appreciation, and love. This beauty is a size 6.75 and has a band width of 2.1 mm. It weighs 2.6 grams, and the face measures 6 mm north to south and 15.2 mm across.

This Victorian 18k Pearl REGARD Ring will be treasured for its beauty as well as for its sincere sentiment. A charming way to express your affection.
