Going through the Victorian jewellery stores and stalls of the 1880’s and 1890’s you would have seen plenty of beautiful hand carved gold jewellery. In particular carved gold half hoop rings that were in vogue at the time. This hand carved craft is something that is a bit of a lost trade these days, which is beautifully shown in this antique carved gold half hoop pearl and diamond ring.
The pearls are natural pearls and the diamonds are small old cuts with big chunky facets. The ring is stamped 18kt gold and the pearls are a rich off white colour. A bit of an alternative gemstone to diamond but maintains all the class. As with any pearl jewellery proper care and attention needs to be given to this ring, ensuring it is not subject to harsh wear or chemicals.
