Victorian Rose Cut Diamond and Persian Turquoise Flush Set Ring
This ring features a gorgeous central rose cut diamond (I mean look at those facets!) flanked by two pear-shaped Persian turquoise cabs set in a heavy 18 karat yellow gold flush setting. The rose diamond signifies eternal love and turquoise “forget me not” in the Victorian sentimental language of flowers and gemstones. The rose cut diamond and scarce Persian turquoise in an uncommon pear-shaped cut make this a very special antique flush-set ring. Approximately .5 carat diamond, beautiful hand-cut antique stone with a nice dome. US size 7 and sizable within reason.
The Victorian era is the period of Queen Victoria's reign, from her accession in 1837 until her death in 1901. Victorian jewelry trends were directly influenced by the Queen's personal collection which included many sentimental pieces honoring her family and her beloved husband Prince Albert. She ruled for over 60 years and this time can be separated into three distinct stages: The Romantic Period, The Grand Period, and the Aesthetic Period.
