Kentwell

sold out!

Kentwell is a wonderful and authentic Victorian era (circa 1890) platinum topped 18k yellow gold ruby and diamond halo engagement ring. The center ruby is set within a twelve-prong setting accompanied by a GIA Ruby Origin Report stating the 0.75ct Oval Brilliant Cut natural ruby is from Burma with no evidence of heat treatment. The Burma No Heat ruby is a wonderfully rare gemstone that has been preserved perfectly in such a timeless Victorian halo ring. The center ruby is further surrounded by a decadent halo of twelve Old Mine Cut diamonds totaling approximately 0.60ct in weight and graded G-H color and VS clarity. Please note, Kentwell's 18k yellow gold shank was most likely replaced within the last thirty years.

The ring is currently a size 7 and can be sized to fit! Please contact our concierge with questions.

HISTORY
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.
