In the Victorian and Edwardian era 5-stone rings were a popular design and much sought after. The most common flavour was five diamonds but jewellers experimented with garnets, rubies and sapphires also.
Occasionally, we see examples where other stones were used and these are more unusual but also very desirable. This Victorian example uses green tourmaline stones to excellent effect - the green is beautifully contrasted with the bright white / clear colouring of the diamonds.
The total diamond weight is approximately 0.16ct and the the tourmalines are approximately 0.12ct in total. These are set in a lovely 18ct gold band which is fully hallmarked with the Birmingham assay although the date mark is not fully visible. That said, from the partial date mark, the ring either dates to 1895 or 1896.

This piece has been specifically selected by us, for you. We choose vintage and antique items which we think are beautiful, elegant and classic at a range of price points between £30 and £3,000.
Generally, this means we only ever have one of each piece. We don’t select pieces which are “mass market” but rather items which are more individual. This means that once an item has been purchased, it really has gone.
Each piece comes in an attractive jewellery presentation box.
