ANTIQUE VICTORIAN TURQUOISE PEARL CLUSTER RING 9CT GOLD GEORGIAN FACE CIRCA 1880
An exquisite Antique cluster ring adorned with Pearls and Turquoise stones arranged in a lovely flower shaped cluster with a Rose cut Diamond twinkling in the centre.
Turquoise are a lovely opaque stone with a calming blue/ green colour and have long been associated with the Forget me not.
Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
The rings face and stones are Circa 1800 and have been recovered from an 18ct Yellow Gold Georgian ring, this has then been added to a newer 9ct Yellow Gold shank during the Victorian era to create the wonderful piece we have here today. It is very striking with a lovely combination of stones.
