Ridgeley

$2,250.00

Ridgeley is an adorable and authentic Victorian era (circa 1890) 14k yellow gold band featuring a charming pearl and diamond combination. The ring showcases three pearls gauged at approximately 4mm (the pearls are most likely natural due to the age of the ring, but have not been tested by a laboratory) alternating with two Old Mine Cut diamonds totaling approximately 0.65ct in combined weight. Ridgeley's pearl and diamond pattern travel 1/2 way around the band. It is currently a size 6 and can be sized to fit some additional ring sizes. Please contact our concierge with sizing 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.
