Oak Knoll is a majestic and authentic Victorian era (circa 1895) 14k and 18k yellow gold engagement ring that most likely started out life as an antique earring. The ring centers an eleven prong set Old European Cut diamond accompanied by an EGL Certificate stating the 1.18ct diamond is graded K color and VS2 clarity. The luscious center diamond is artfully surrounded by a glittering halo of eleven Old Mine Cut diamonds, totaling approximately 0.65ct in total weight. An 18k yellow gold shank has been recently added to the 14k yellow gold original Victorian diamond top. It is currently a size 5 and can be sized to fit most ring sizes.

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.
