Holliston is a charming and authentic Victorian era (circa 1880) cluster ring that most likely started out life as an earring. A unique two-toned 18k white and yellow gold shank was added in the 1940's. The ring features an Old Mine Cushion Cut diamond gauged at approximately 0.90-1.00ct. Due to the construction of the setting, we were unable to remove the stone to measure the exact depth. The center diamond is graded L-M color and VS clarity. Holliston is further accented by a chunky halo of seven Old Mine Cut diamonds totaling approximately 0.85ct in weight. The top of the ring is accompanied by a unique shank composed of both yellow and white gold. An engraved geometric pattern wraps the entire of the shank. The ring is currently a size 6.75 and can be sized to fit most ring sizes. Please note, our experienced jeweler will try to match seamlessly the continuous pattern around the shank if it needs to be sized.

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.
