Antique “REGARD” Ring
Acrostic jewelry falls under the auspices of sentimental jewelry – that of love and sorrow. Given as a token of love, esteem or friendship, the gem-set piece contains a veiled message displaying a hidden meaning spelled out using the first letter of each of the stones.
This 15k yellow gold ring from the later decades of the 1800s is referred to as a REGARD ring as it is set with a R-uby, E-merald, G-arnet, A-methyst, R-uby and D-iamond. Straying somewhat from the typical example, the gems have been placed in a mount separate from the shank of the ring, i.e., in a setting applied to the front of the slightly tapering gold band. Although simple in its design, the overall configuration of the ring is quite striking.
