It’s official. Those Victorians sure knew what they were doing - well, at least when it came to jewelry. After all, they did bring us hourglass corsets, rules on how to flirt with hand fans, and the idea that honey-charcoal toothpaste (yes, for real) made sense.
But when it came to jewels and all things bling, there wasn’t anything this era was afraid to bring to the table.
Case in point: The Victorian Emerald Ring is a showstopping, attention-grabbing son of a gun that twinkles like the heavens. It has 1.40 carats of endless rose-cut diamonds with a megawatt emerald at the center. Peeking through and adding delicate detailing, 14-karat gold tapers into scrolling shoulders that support this Victorian-era masterpiece (1837-1901).
This chunky chandelier of a ring is a size 7.5 US with the ring face measuring 19 mm north to south and 17 mm east to west. She’s been around for quite some time (a century or two), crafting a history all her own. The visible solder marks on her underside are delightfully sweet scars left by those who loved her.
Our version of Victorian fashion is corset and toothpaste-free. The caveat? It’s packed with attitude and sparkle. Because what better way is there to rock this commotion-causing treat of a ring?
