Story

In general an acrostic is a coded message written in alphabetic script in which the first letter, syllable or word of each paragraph or verse taken in order forms a word or phrase.

Acrostic jewelry is typically sentimental in nature and is given in love, friendship and mourning. It was thought to appear first during the Napoleonic era when ladies wore jewel-encrusted bracelets on their wrists as a souvenir of their lover’s name or the date of their initial romantic encounter spelled out using the first letter of the set stones.

This Edwardian example is a ring of 9k yellow gold set with amethyst, diamond, opal, ruby and emerald. In the language of gemstones the word ADORE is expressed without even a whisper spoken. The under gallery is particularly lovely with botanical details and scroll motifs.

Date: Circa 1900.
