Appian Way is a delightful and delicate Victorian (circa 1895) 14k rose gold cluster ring. This antique halo centers a sparkling 0.79ct EGL certified Old European Cut diamond graded I color and VS2. An adorable halo of twelve Old Mine Cut diamonds elegantly surround the center diamond, totaling approximately 0.25ct in weight. Appian Way is a dreamy and delicate example of Victorian design and we absolutely love how comfortable it is to wear! The ring is currently a size 6.5 and can be sized to fit most ring sizes. Please contact our concierge with sizing questions.
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.
