Avebury

$5,750.00

Avebury is a striking and authentic Victorian era (circa 1890) 14k yellow gold ring featuring three vertically set Old Mine Cut diamonds. The three stones, graded G-H color and VS-SI clarity have a combined weight of 1.82ct. Avebury was made in the Etruscan Style, a reference to an ancient civilization in the Etrurian region of Italy known for its golden filigree adornments. Etruscan Revival jewelry came to prominence in the late 19th century. Avebury is finished with a wide band decorated with seed-shaped gold details along the 14k yellow gold shank ending in a lovely scroll feature at the shoulders. Deep grooves, milgraining, and a horseshoe engraving are only a few of the magnificent decorations you’ll find along this intricately designed ring.

Avebury is currently a size 6.75 and can be sized to fit. Please contact our concierge with sizing questions.

HISTORY
The Victorian Period was named for Queen Victoria, who inherited the throne of England in 1837 when she was only 18 years old. Victoria was young, beautiful, and loved immensely by her subjects. Her tastes in fashion and jewelry were highly regarded and inspired the Victorian jewelry trends of the time. Queen Victoria was married in 1840, and she wore a snake motif ring (a symbol of eternal love at the time) set with her birthstone, a brilliant green emerald, as her engagement ring. In the Victorian era, it was very common for birthstones to be used instead of diamonds for engagement rings. After Victoria’s beloved Albert passed away in 1861, the queen went into the customary mourning period for 18 months, which inspired the gold lockets and black jet pieces commonly seen in this period.
