Wrightwood is an extraordinary and authentic Early Victorian (circa 1845) 14k rose gold ring. This true antique ring has amazingly vivid Russian Hallmarks on the edge of the shank. Wrightwood centers a fifteen prong set diamond accompanied by EGL certificate stating that the 1.26ct Cushion Cut diamond is graded F color and VS1 clarity. Due to the proportions of the stone, it has the appearance of a nearly 2 carat stone! Wrightwood is further adorned by an magnificent halo of fifteen Rose Cut diamonds totaling approximately 0.50ct in weight. The ring is completed with a subtle oxidation to the metal, a finish that can only truly come with age. The ring is currently a size 6.75 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.
