Story

The gem chrysoberyl is quite rare and most examples date from the 18th to early 19th century. Mined in Brazil, the Spanish and Portuguese were particularly fond of the stone and used it extensively in their jewelry of that time. The English jewelers discovered the beauty of the gem a bit later on and used it to its advantage as this present example indicates.

An early yellow gold Victorian ring sports a marvelous daisy form of five petals each set with a gem of the quite rare chrysoberyl (referred to as chrysolite during the Victorian and Edwardian eras). Faceted teardrops of a captivating pale chartreuse green shimmer with high refractivity that rivals the fire of a diamond surround a centered petite rose cut diamond. Rub over bezels of 9k yellow gold accented with subtle detail enfold the precious gems. The period ring has been reshanked with a fabulous 15k yellow gold beaded shank. The daisy form ring is a loving sentiment of emotion and romance.

Date: Circa 1840.
