Story

Acrostic jewelry uses the first letter of each gem to convey a “secret” message. Believed to have begun during the Georgian period (1714 - 1837), the popularity of this style peaked during the Victorian Era when decorum prevented the direct expressions of feelings. There has been a resurgence of the trend in the 21st century and jewelry pieces, especially rings have been popping up.

Here is a modern example of this sweet sentiment of a ring in 14k yellow gold. From the top and counterclockwise are the following round faceted gems each 3 mm in diameter and .07 to .10 carats: Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, Ruby and an old mine cut diamond of .05 carats centered. The specific code in this spells REGARD.

The stones are in bezels accented with golden orbs echoing the borders of the sides and shank. Shoulders are in the form of an “Y” and banded all across the shank. The overall look is ornate and decorative with the combination of gems bright and festive.
