A true antique, this regal-looking ring has all the markings of fine Victorian design. A gorgeous emerald-cut garnet is surrounded by about a carat in total weight of glistening rose cut diamonds. The rounded edges of the ring, along with the lovely leaf details on the side, and the naturalistic look of the rose cut diamonds contrast perfectly with the garnet's straight cut and deep, mysterious tone. The setting is detailed through and through, with a cut-out metal scrollwork basket, completely carved shank, and leaf motif shoulders. It is made of 18k yellow gold and silver, a mark of early Victorian jewelry. It is currently a size 7 and may be resized, but may need extra work to keep the carved design around the shank. The top of the ring measures 3/4 inch wide and 7/8 inch long.
