Starling

$19,800.00

Starling is a show-stopping authentic early Victorian era (circa 1860) antique 18k yellow gold and diamond ring that likely started life as part of a tiara or large brooch. Designed in the shape of an eight petal flower, the ring centers a decadent Old Mine Cushion Cut diamond gauged in the mounting at approximately 1.30ct and graded O-P-Q color, VS1 clarity. Each of petals feature two Old Mine Cut diamonds for a total of 16 stones with a combined total weight of approximately 3.50ct. Starling is finished with a simple 18k yellow gold shank and is remarkably low profile despite it’s rather considerable size. At its widest, Starling expands 21.35mm across the finger.

This ultra unique ring is currently a size 6.75 and can be sized to fit. 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.
