Sure looks like it could be from that period. Get it appraised is the best route.

Are you asking if it’s 1920s or Victorian, as those are 2 different eras with extremely different styles and aesthetics.

 

I’d need more/better/zoomed in photos to make a better determination, but the scrollwork in the side profile is common in both Victorian era rings as well as more contemporary rings based in Victorian designs.  I’ve certainly seen Victorian era rings that look like this, before.

Jewelry from the 1920s is much more likely to be white metal (platinum, white gold, silver, or even a plated base metal.)

Are there any markings inside the band?

It looks Victorian to me. Older than 1920s. What an incredible find! I would get it appraised. Looks legit.

What a lucky find! If I were you,  I’d take it to a reputable jeweler to get them to test the metal and stones. A good jeweler should be able to tell you about your find.

wow, it’s beautiful! the other are correct that Victorian refers to the era during which Queen Victoria was reigning – 1837-1901., so, significantly earlier than the 1920s.

Does it have anything written inside? Until 1998 in the UK, for example, products had to be marked with certain information and you can use those marks to determine the age/quality of a ring. Here’s more detail on that:

If it was 18kt there should be a stamp. Your photos do not look like diamonds however.
