I just wanted to share this vintage ring I got a few weeks ago and hid from myself until my birthday today. I was looking for a special RHR for a bday treat and this one just tugged my heart strings for its symbolic design and it magically already fit the finger I intended it for.
The ring has 3 OECs (unsure of stats of course but eye clean and bright white) in 18k gold set in octogonal panels in a starbust gypsy setting. Its late Victorian- 1892 from Chester, UK. Sparkle facts: In this era a combination of recently discovered diamond mines and a wealthy middle class created a boom in diamond jewelz production. Previously they were reserved for royalty and the upper upper crusty folk.
and now most importantly PICs!
And these were from the vendor (HardingandGriffin on Etsy- awesome vintage seller)
