Story

Romance, friendship and symbolism were at an all time high during the Victorian era. Even though the Queen had undergone the loss of her beloved consort, this event did not lessen the sentimentality and symbolism which permeated the entire period. At times the colors in nature were associated with colored gems and the language of flowers took on meaning in the jewelry of the day. Additional symbolism was paired with diamonds and precious gems.

Here we see an example of a flower cluster ring from the later years of the 19th century. Overall emblematic, a pair of oval faceted natural garnets representing faithful love and fidelity share with a brilliant cut diamond – a status symbol for wealth (no matter the size) – and two half seed pearls which were often associated with innocence and pureness and presented on a girl’s 18th birthday.

All in a 14k rose gold mounting embellished with a symbol for an enduring life, the acanthus leaf motif on the sides. Incised to the interior in beautiful hand-engraved script are “FPP” and “HF” which are mostly the initials of the giver and receiver.

Date: Circa 1890.
