Circa 1860, this striking antique 9ct gold garnet set signet style ring has everything you could possibly want in a Victorian ring.
Statuesque and stately the ring is neoclassical styled in a rich rosy gold, a subtle pinkish shade that is characteristic of antique rose gold. The ring showcases a large ruby red garnet of at least 5 carats standing proud in a raised 3-tier setting. The juicy pomegranate seed coloured stone is framed by a twisted gold border and then a decorative chased border. Impressively wide shoulders at each side are engraved in beautiful fern flourishes and a wide flat band completes this beauty.
Fully hallmarked this ring has appeal to both the ladies and the gents and looks fabulous on any finger. A wonderful collector's piece, the perfect heirloom piece to be passed down in generations to come.
