Corliss is a majestic and authentic Victorian era (circa 1895) 14k yellow gold ring featuring a four-prong set Cushion Mixed Cut natural pink tourmaline gauged at approximately 12mm x 10.5mm weighing approximately 4.20ct in weight. The pretty slightly desaturated pink tourmaline has a touch of abrasion and minor chips along the facets. Due to the age of the ring, we didn't want to remove the stone from the setting. Corliss is finished with a 14k yellow gold mounting with lovely fluted detailing along the shoulders. The ring is currently a size 9.5 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.
