Late Georgian and Victorian jewellery is growing increasingly popular as it becomes harder to find pieces which have stood the test of time, and it's easy to see why you'd want to own an incredible piece of history like this!
Circa 1870, this ring is an extremely rare item made from 12ct Rose Gold, Turquoise and the most beautiful deep magenta coloured Garnet.
It has the large over-sized antique hallmarks that all collectors covet, and the prettiest engravings all the way round the band.
12ct Gold was introduced in 1854 (in conjunction with 9ct and 15ct) as an alternative to the 18ct Gold that was available at the time. It's an excellent choice of material for rings as it's very hard-wearing, which is why this one is offered in such great condition.
We adore the colour combination! You won't want to take off!

This ring is in excellent condition throughout. The band is completely free from wear and the Garnet and Turquoise stones are all immaculate with chips scuffs, scratches or abrasions. There is no evidence of re-sizing so although the band is fairly delicate, as was the fashion at the time, it is strong and in ready to wear condition.
The back of the Garnet is open where the old locket-type back once rested, but we don't feel its absence is a loss. In fact the true colour of the Garnet comes out all the more as the light can travel freely though the gemstone. It may or may not have one replacement Turquoise (assessed mounted).
Truly a beautiful ring that should be treasured for generations to come.
