Briarscourt

$4,350.00

Briarscourt is a gorgeous and authentic Victorian era (circa 1900) 18k yellow gold, platinum-topped five-stone diamond ring. This antique beauty features five prong-set Old European Cut diamonds graduating in size. The center 0.57ct diamond is a stunning E color and VS1 clarity, and is immediately flanked by a perfectly matched pair of Old European Cut diamonds with a combined weight of 0.66ct. The final two Old European Cut diamonds are beautifully paired with a combined weight of 0.55ct and finish the five-stone sequence impeccably. Briarscourt is stunning on its own, but gorgeous as centerpiece to a stack of rings with its long and lean presentation. Finished with a maker’s mark reading “HS” on its slim 18k yellow gold shank, Briarscourt is a T&H favorite (and almost didn’t make it to the site!)

This ring is currently a size 10 and can be sized to fit most ring sizes. 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.
