Ask a question

A lovely almandine garnet and natural pearl ring from about 1845, in a rosy nine-carat gold mount. It’s a closed setting, as was common.

The garnet’s pinky hue and flat cut also help to place it in the early Victorian period.

The ring isn’t marked for gold content. This was common at the time. Until the 1870s most rings weren’t hallmarked – then marking was sporadic until 1973.

It’s finely engraved all over the gold back and sides. The crimped settings are also typical of early 19th-century jewellery.
