Victorian 18kt Multi Gemstone "ADORE" Acrostic Ring
A beautiful "ADORE" ring from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This charming ring is made of 18kt yellow gold and has a very feminine and delicate look. Set across the front is a row of five stones whose first letters spell out the word "ADORE," making the ring part of a romantic Victorian tradition. The stones include an Amethyst, Diamond, Opal, Ruby, and an Emerald. Besides the smooth opal cabochon, each stone is faceted and held within a gold prong setting. The sides of the ring are detailed with a lovely swirled motif that accents the design perfectly. The inside of the shank is stamped "LBS" and "18" along with several English hallmarks including a crown and an anchor. It's a wonderful ring that would be perfect for everyday wear or as a gift for someone special!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of a large 8.25 but could be resized.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting and all 5 stones are intact.
