9ct yellow gold "dearest ring" £455

Acrostic jewellery was a charming feature of the Victorian period. Gemstones would be used to spell out a message or name using the first letter of the gem. LOVE, REGARD or DEAREST were spelt out in rings and heart pendants. This DEAREST ring has been made featuring Diamond, Emerald, Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Topaz.
