Pick of the Week – Volume 56

Baubles and Bling with Unbelievable Pricing

In the Victorian era (1837-1901), the diamond was not the most popular choice for engagement rings.  In fact, more often than not, the recipient’s birthstone was chosen for the occasion.  Queen Victoria’s ring was no exception.  Designed by Albert, it was an 18-karat yellow gold serpent that wrapped around her finger.  The sinuous snake showcased ruby eyes, a diamond mouth…  and an emerald set in its head.  Born on May 24th, 1819, the emerald was Victoria’s birthstone.  

Perhaps this ring was originally created for the same purpose…  it would have been a lovely betrothal ring.  Made in the late Victorian era, this curvaceous charmer was constructed from 14-karat yellow gold.  The center boasts a bright green pear-shaped emerald that weighs approximately 1.25 carats.  

Gem fine, the color tone and saturation are stellar and can only be described as emerald green.  While the stone is not flawless, it’s reasonably clean – a rarity for an emerald.  Just like diamonds, colored stones are graded using the Four C’s…  color, cut, clarity and carat weight.  As you might suspect, color is the most important “C” for colored gems.  In regard to emeralds, clarity ranks a close second.  To have both outstanding color and superb clarity is nearly unheard of.  

Surrounding the emerald are fourteen Old Mine Cut diamonds.  One additional stone crowns the tip.  Together, these diamonds have a total weight of .75 carat.  An antique beauty, this ring is an exceptional example.  It has presented one question…  would you wear it with the point up?  Or point down?

It looks lovely either way.  There’s no right or wrong answer, merely personal preference.  If you’re lucky enough to own this ring, you can wear any way you want!
