Story

A rectangular shaped natural orange red garnet of an estimated 1.8 carats is prong set in a vertical oval mounting of 10k rose gold. Old European cut diamonds, two (2) in all with an estimated total weight of .14 carats embellish the north and south cardinal points as a pair of half natural freshwater pearls in square rose gold bezels appoint the east and west sides of the garnet. Tapered shoulders adorned with pattern work accent the smooth shank.

Date: Circa 1880.

Notes: Garnets, diamonds and pearls were popular throughout the entire Victorian period from 1840-1890 and these three gems when used in combination gave credence to what was then referred to as “secondary” jewelry. Those items referred to as “primary” were intended to be worn by royalty and the über rich of the time and reflected the masterful craftsmanship and costliest of precious gems. Secondary jewelry was jewelry worn everyday, for day or evening wear. Often the jewelry was less important, using semi precious gemstones, for instance garnets, rather than perhaps rubies.
