Roseway

sold out!
Roseway is a breathtaking and authentic Victorian era (circa 1890) 14k yellow gold ruby and diamond halo ring. The vivid pinkish-red center ruby is accompanied by a GIA Ruby Origin Report stating the 1.81ct Cushion Brilliant Cut natural ruby is Heated with Thai origin. The beautiful rich red color of the center ruby is further surrounded by a decadent halo of ten Old Mine Cut diamonds totaling approximately 1.05ct in weight and graded G-H color and VS-SI clarity. Roseway likely started it’s life as an earring, and its 14k yellow gold split shank was most likely added in the last thirty years to create the beautiful ring that it is today! We cannot get enough of Roseway’s sublime rosy color and believe that rubies are criminally under appreciated, learn more about colored gemstones on our blog here!

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.
