This magnificent example of Victorian sentiment is a real conversation piece. Six bright gemstones laid across the finger, embedded amongst a crown of cream-colored pearls, collectively form a secret message.
Borrowing the first letter from the name of each gemstone, this so-called "Acrostic" ring spells out REGARD, with the stones being Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, a second Ruby, and Diamond. This romantic messaging is characteristic of Victorian jewelry, ever symbolic yet discreet!
Each of the colored gemstones measures approximately 1.75-2mm in diameter
The pearls each measure approximately 2-2.5mm in diameter
The top of the ring measures about 10mm from top to bottom by 15mm across the finger.
This ring is a size 8.5. Please contact us for custom sizing inquiries.
