Here at Kirsten’s Corner, we have a sweet spot for these early Victorian flower rings. This 15k gold ring is reminiscent of a Forget-Me-Not flower, a popular motif in the Victorian era. The pearl flower petals in the ring represent tears and capture the romance in our hearts. A central garnet sits delicately amidst a lacy background, while two Old Emerald Cut emeralds add a pop of green to each side of the flower. Each stone is prong set into an early Victorian setting that was traditional for these types of rings. Along the sides is scrolling foliate, hand detailed to look like leaves. A lovely engraving goes all the way around the band of the ring, even detailing the edges of the band. Circa 1850, this is a very old ring that conveys sentimentality and everlasting love.
The garnet measures 3 x 3.5 mm; the emeralds measure approximately 2.25- 2.5 mm; the six pearls are approximately 3 mm. The ring is unmarked but tests as 12k. It weighs 2.65 grams. The flower measures 1/2” across. The band is 1.68 mm wide.
Ring size 6.75. Because engraving covers the entirety of the band, we recommend not resizing this ring to protect its integrity.
