Victorian Rings

The style of Victorian rings was clearly defined as those produced during Queen Victoria’s reign between 1837 and 1900, with pieces from this era clearly showing the Royal affection between her and Prince Albert. The Victorian period was the first era during which the monarch had so much influence on jewellery styles and her affection for diamonds led to a widespread use of these as the main stone used in rings.

Throughout the Victorian period, three distinct times can be seen - the Romantic period, the Grand period and the Aesthetic period, each which came with their own styles and trends. One thing which is important to understand about the history of Victorian rings, however, is that there was two very key changes to both the metals used in jewellery and the gemstones used which occurred during these years. The first of these was the development of lower carat gold alloys, making jewellery more affordable and widely available. Prior to 1854, the majority of fine jewellery was made using either 22 or 18 carat gold, however the Victorian era brought about a widespread use of 15, 12 and even 9 carat gold alloys. The second key change during the period was the opening of diamond mines in South Africa which saw large individual diamonds come to the market and become popular in both engagement and wedding rings.
