This fine antique Turquoise and Diamond cluster ring is one of the prettiest Turquoise rings we've ever had the pleasure of looking after! Made during the early Victorian period, circa 1840, this ring is a masterpiece of design and craft!
The sweeping shape of the 9ct Gold setting is perfectly balanced by the playful pop of bright Persian Turquoise, and the design is so rare and unusual.
We adore the delicate hand-chased details, the dainty rose cut Diamond centre, and of course, the sentiment behind rings like these.
Forget-me-not rings and antique Turquoise cluster rings were often given as romantic gifts or were items of jewellery associated with mourning and rich in meaning. Their symbolism speaks of an everlasting love or bond that will never be forgotten.
A stunning addition for any antique jewellery collector or history enthusiast.

EXCELLENT: My goodness, this fine antique Turquoise and Diamond cluster ring is just fantastic! It's in incredible condition throughout. The band is fine, as was the style of the time, but still completely suitable for daily wear. The Turquoise is all lovely with no chips or abrasions. As is common with antique forget-me-not rings the original glazed panel behind the gems has been long lost, but this doesn't affect the rare beauty of this ring. It looks as beautiful today as it did when it was made nearly 200 years ago. Absolutely divine!
