Victorian 14kt Yellow Gold Vintage Coral Ring
If you were in the upper classes of Victorian society, you may have had some jewelry. The fancy things, diamond rings, tiaras, stomachers and châtelains were really for those in the nobility classes, but if you had some money and had done well for yourself (or you husband had), even without a title, you may still have had pieces beyond a simple wedding ring. We love these pieces. They are what we would call “every day” jewelry these days. Our Victorian 14kt Yellow Gold Vintage Coral Ring is a perfect example.
What We Love About It:
The simplicity of this ring is not to be missed. The coral is lovely and the split shank makes this such an elegant ring. One that could be worn all of the time.
We estimate the ring to be from the early 1900s. The is made from 14kt yellow gold and holds a natural coral oval cabochon (16mm x 8mm) set in a double bezel setting. The sides of the ring shank are a “split shank”, meaning the shank is divided in two and runs down both sides being soldered together at the bottom of the shank. The ring is currently a size 5.5 US and could be sized up or down for a fee by our jeweler (there will be an extra fee given the complexity of the of the split shank and we have adjusted our prices in this listing accordingly) or by yours. The ring weighs in at 2.9g.
Want to pretend that your Victorian upper class? We’ve got just the ring for you. 😉
