We are delighted to offer this large and majestic 18ct gold garnet ring made in the early Victorian period c.1840.Distinctly antique and exquisitely designed, this ring features a large garnet cabochon set in 18ct gold with a central diamond set in a gold star mount. Such intricate and sensational design truly comes to life upon wearing this ring under natural lighting as the round cabochon allows for the light to reflect in many different tones with the bright sparkle of the diamond to contrast and complete its delightful appearance. The wonderful lustres range from a dark maroon to a red depending on the angle of the lighting. In low-light situations such as at late-night events, parties or even candlelight the garnet and diamond create a further unique and contrasted appearance that presents an aura of mystique and unparalleled elegance. In addition to its classical elegance and distinguished Victorian flair, we believe that such timeless pieces can be surprisingly complimentary to modern style and design. Wearing this piece in combination with today's clothing/accessories can sometimes create a wonderful juxtaposed aesthetic and an avant-garde stylistic statement. A wonderful and practical piece of antique Victorian jewellery that is a conversation starter in its own right and also perfect with other antique jewellery and garnet accessories.
Garnet is known to be the birthstone for January.
The ring is unmarked as is common with pieces of the period however we have tested it for 18ct+ high-carat gold.
All of our jewellery come with a complimentary hard shell gift box with a velvet interior.
