Grand Victorian Romanesque Cabochon Garnet 'Carbuncle' Ring

Item #07418

Sold

This rare antique Victorian ring has all the feel of an historic Roman jewel and wearing it feels quite prestigious. As rich as wine, the glow of the marvellous cabochon Pyrope Garnet reflects beautifully through the dome of the Garnet. In fact in ancient times, the domed Garnet (referred to as 'carbuncle') was believed to have magical properties, particularly of providing light in the dark and this wonderful example of the revered gem is backed in 15ct gold which cleverly magnifies this effect. 

It is somewhat difficult to place at an exact date but we would say circa 1880's-1900. Completely hand crafted, all of 15ct yellow gold and so British made, the ring size is an 'O' or '7' and it may be possible to adjust a tiny amount for size.
