A most unusual antique 15ct gold Victorian trilogy ring set with 3 chrysoprase gemstones (a variety of chalcedony).
This ring is crafted in thick antique rose gold with the stones cabochon cut into ovals and claw set into a unique scalloped setting with elegant D-shaped shoulders. The unique claw setting style is almost "free form" showcasing the waxy deep green stones to perfection.
Used for jewellery and seals since Roman times, all varieties of this ancient hardstone were popular in Victorian jewellery and it was used extensively in Scottish jewelry in particular. Bloodstone, banded agate and carnelian are all forms of chalcedony, a stone long believed to attract new love, abundance and prosperity.
