During the 64 years Queen Victoria occupied the throne just about every material imaginable was used to create jewelry items, from diamonds which dominated the period as a whole to far less popular and celebrated materials such as human teeth.
Diamonds, which were already massively popular, continued to dominate jewelry fashions throughout and beyond the Victorian era. During the Victorian period, the British Empire had control over Australia, South Africa, and India, where the bulk of the world’s diamonds were mined. Consequently, diamonds were featured in every kind of jewelry made at the time from rings to earrings.
This sparkling example features .70cts of juicy diamonds side by side, making this a possible engagement ring with lovely symbolism of unity. Classic, feminine, and edgy, this is a piece perfect for any night look, ring stack, or collection. Diamonds go with everything, darling.
