Antique 15k Tourmaline, Seed Pearl, and Paste Ring

Sale price Price $1,195.00 Regular price

Victorian jewelry is as complex in its symbolism, sentiment, and design as the fashion, architecture, and decor of the time. Worn as an ornament, a love token, or a remembrance, jewelry not only completed the well-dressed lady’s costume but also denoted her position in society, her marital status, and her sense of self.

Tourmaline has been said to be a stone of reconciliation, a stone that fosters compassion and cool-headedness, radiates the energy that attracts money, and reaffirms our Earth roots. This gorgeous ring features three juicy tourmaline stones accompanied by seed pearls, pearls, and gorgeous goldwork throughout, making this a perfect stacker and new member of your jewelry collection.
