Garnets were a favored stone for Victorian jewelry. The glorious color symbolized the unbridled passions which lurked beneath a strict code of ethics which covered everything from the body to décor for the home. Here 10k rose gold is the embrace which caresses a centered round faceted natural garnet between a pair of cultured pearls. A scalloped coronet setting enhances the vertical profile of the Victorian ring. Shoulders embellished with design forms add a hint of fancy.
