Bayswater

$850.00

Bayswater is a unique authentic Victorian era (circa 1895) ring converted from an antique stick pin made from the famous American Jewelry house Henry Blank & Co and Cresarrow (hallmark is on the back). The ring depicts a winged griffin centering a single bezel set round natural sapphire gauged at 0.20ct and further accented with a round emerald for its eye. This unusual ring is an example of a wonderfully handcrafted piece of American history. Bayswater is currently a size 6 and can be sized to fit.

HISTORY
Much of the popular Victorian jewelry was inspired by Queen Victoria’s style. For example, birthstones were popular in engagement rings because Victoria wore hers with an emerald. The Victorian era is further divided into Early (1837–1860), Mid (1860–1885), and Late (1890–1901) periods, reflecting changes in Victoria’s life and personal style. Early and late Victorian period jewelry is often described as having a romantic look, but mid-Victorian style is darker and more sentimental, reflecting Victoria’s personal period of mourning after the loss of her husband and mother.
