This circa 1880 Victorian Regard ring with 6 gemstones set in a radial fashion, the first letter of which spell out the word "Regard"- Ruby-emerald-garnet-amethyst-ruby-Diamond, is what we consider Victorian sentimental jewelry. The flowers engraved along the shoulders top and sides of the ring appear to be the Campanula bell flower, which in Victorian nomenclature symbolized "gratitude. The round shape of the head of the ring with the stones set in a spiral is extremely appealing. We also like that the jewelry artisans thoughtfully set the stones in the gold in the most secure fashion possible. This is an open back ring which can handle wet environments and moisture. The ring is a size 7 and can be sized easily.
