Victorian Old-Mine Cut Diamond Cluster Ring
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.
Cluster rings have been worn at least as far back as the Georgian era, beginning in 1747, and have continued to be popular to this day. There are many variations on a cluster. While there is a classic cluster that is simply round or oval in shape featuring a prong set round cut stone in a halo around a central gemstone, there are many varieties of cluster-like settings that have either evolved from or are simply cluster-like.
