The Victorian era saw an explosion of symbolic and sentimental jewelry in popular culture around the world. Queen Victoria loved her jewels and had something for every occasion. Prior to this era, we primarily saw jewelry as menswear - imagine that!
An exceptional band with charismatic rose cuts set into star settings, this beautiful ring is in 14ct pink gold, circa 1860. With scrolled details that lead the eye from one star to the next, there is a certain magic to the presentation of this band on the hand. There is an unidentifiable inscription that adds to the mystery of this special example.
