ABOUT:

Beautiful antique Victorian "REGARD" ring - this acrostic piece uses the first letter of each of the gems: Ruby Emerald Garnet Amethyst Ruby Diamond - to spell out the sentiment. Beautiful token of love or friendship. Also fun to wear because of the beautiful colors of the mixed gems. Antique closed back setting with sort of love knot details at the face and swirling openwork shoulders (see below).

No hallmarks remain, but I tested it in several places at 18k gold.

Antique box not included.

MEASUREMENTS:

Ring is currently about a size 6 3/4. The ring face is 7.3mm north south at the face. It weighs 2.2 grams. The largest stone the center garnet is about 4.2mm with the others tapering down, the diamond is quite small.

IMPORTANT CONDITION NOTES:

I believe this one was reshanked as there is solder inside the ring face at each shoulder. The emerald is chipped with areas of loss along one side. Still a nice green pop of color and is somewhat hidden by the bezel but something to look for in the zoomed photos. The closed back settings are a bit cloudy from age, especially noticeable on the lighter colored amethyst, less seen on the richer colored stones when you can't see through them.

Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. They will have patina, surface wear, a few small nicks. These pieces may also have evidence of a sizing, some build up around the stones and / or inclusions seen under magnification, typical for antique pieces. I have mentioned any noticeable issues above and they are all still wearable and eager to be loved and accepted for many years to come, (the preservation of antique jewelry, even those with signs of their age and history, is important to me. : )
But - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. Pictures also serve as part of the description and condition report so please utilize the zoom feature which will magnify any wear significantly more than what is visible to the eye while wearing : )

I would be delighted if you'd follow me in my shop. Thanks for stopping by!
