Gypsy rings originate from the Victorian era, their distinctive design developed when wealthy women would travel and be fearful of their jewels being stolen. They felt gemstones set in raised claw settings were easier to steal, so gemstones were as a result set flush within the Gold to make them less of a target.
This antique trilogy ring has a satisfying plump profile, and ornate scrollwork in a buttery 18ct Gold band. This Gold 'gypsy' ring is packed with personality, you will never tire of her undeniable charm!

VERY GOOD. This antique 18ct Gold Garnet Diamond gypsy ring is in lovely condition. Her Diamonds are securely set adding a subtle sparkle to the piece. The Garnet has a wonderful deep hue and beautifully cut facets, there is slight movement to the stone but she is secure. It is important to note that due to the Diamonds having closed-back settings, you should avoid getting this ring wet. The Gold remains in great nick, with no dings to note! All her hallmarks clearly visible, making this the perfect Victorian treasure for your antique jewellery collection.
