A lovely "REGARD" ring from the Victorian (ca1880) era! This charming acrostic ring is crafted in 15kt yellow gold and has a sentimental and feminine design. Adorning the center of the band are six faceted gemstones, whose first letters spell out the word "REGARD." The stones, in order, include a Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, a second Ruby, and a Diamond. The oval-shaped gemstones rest in gold collet settings while the diamond sits in a silver collet, three lines decorate each shoulder of the ring before it tapers into a thin band. This wonderful ring is part of a sentimental antique tradition, and it would make a special gift in the modern day!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 7 1/2 but could be resized if desired. The gemstone centerpiece measures less than 1/4" wide at its widest point. The band measures 1mm wide at the back.
Condition: The ring is in overall excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the gold setting and all of the gemstones are intact and securely set.
