Canary Court is a gorgeous and authentic Victorian era (circa 1880) 18k yellow gold ring that most likely started life out as an earring. The diamond studded shoulders and shank appear to have been added after 1940 using older diamonds. The ring centers a triple-claw set 1.58ct EGL certified Old Mine Brilliant Cut diamond graded Q-R color and VS2 clarity. The warm tone of the center diamond pairs perfectly with the 18k yellow gold setting and is finished with tapering yellow gold shoulders studded with six Old Mine Cut diamonds totaling approximately 0.18ct in weight. 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.
