Antique Garnet & Pearl Cluster Ring
The early years of the Victorian era is often referred to as the Romantic Period. Jewelry designers drew inspiration from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the natural world. We can see that influence in this ring of 14k yellow gold. Reminiscent of 13th century gems, a rectangular natural garnet (9 mm by 7 mm) has been polished to a smooth flat top and faceted sides. A series of sixteen (16) natural seed pearls (untested but guaranteed to be natural) forms a surround with each of the pearls set into crimped collets of yellow gold. The shank is a study in foliate design with a variety of flower and leaf motifs embellishing each side.
Date: Circa 1850.
