All love stories affect the individuals enamored of each other, but few romances have been as influential on the world of jewelry as the romance of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Smitten with Albert from their second meeting, Victoria proposed to him five days into their reunion. With passion brimming from her heart, it is no wonder the early years of Victoria's reign were marked by romanticism in cultural attitude and design. She was in love and everyone knew it.

The Queen’s inclination towards all things sentimental when it came to ornamenting herself inspired jewelers to craft pieces of sunshiny yellow gold, carved with soft lines and set with precious stones. This Antique Old European Cut Diamond Carved Ring is a striking example of just such a piece. The diamond centered within the 14K gold band was crafted in a time before technology made geometric precision in cutting possible. Featuring larger faceting and a softer appearance than many modern diamonds, this gemstone was shaped for ultimate sparkle in the candlelight. And candlelight, as we know, is the epitome of romantic mood lighting. So slip this stunner on to glow and sparkle. We think Queen Victoria would definitely approve.
