Huntley is a show-stopping and authentic Victorian era (circa 1885) 14k yellow gold traditional cluster ring. This lovely antique ring centers an eight-prong set 0.93ct EGL certified Old European Cut diamond graded H color and VS1 clarity. The diamond weighs just under a carat and is generously surrounded by an additional eight prong-set Old Mine Cut diamonds totaling approximately 1.50ct in weight. Huntley is finished with intricately detailed shoulders that taper inwards towards the base of the ring. This unique piece of history is a very special example of rings from the Victorian period. It is currently a size 8 and can be sized to fit.
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.
