Victorian Style Rings (1837 - 1901)

The Victorian era was a time of great change and optimism.

Dearest rings and regards rings

Dearest and Regard Rings


Romanticism marked the beginning of the Victorian era.  Romantic jewellery included rings which spelled out the words Regard or Dearest in coloured stones such as ruby, emerald, garnet, amethyst, diamond and topaz.  Antique reproduction romantic rings are still popular today as love tokens.

Victorian Engagement Rings
Victorian Engagement Rings

The opening up of the diamond mines in South Africa in the 1870s meant that diamonds were suddenly more plentiful and affordable. Victorian half hoop rings containing diamonds became fashionable. In order to display the beauty of the diamonds and coloured stones, the rings were made with open backs and small setting edges. Half hoop rings were often given as engagement rings.  The Victorian half hoop rings were so popular that they were still being made as antique reproduction rings well into the late 20th century.

 

Diamond rings were the preserve of the upper classes at the beginning of the reign of Queen Victoria. The scarcity of diamonds meant that prices were high. Early Victorian diamond rings used old cut diamonds with rose cut diamond points. 


Gold snake rings and serpent rings with ruby sapphire or diamond eyes

Victorian Snake or Serpent Rings

The snake or serpent symbol, representing eternity, has been used in jewellery since Roman times.  The snake ring, set with diamonds, rubies or sapphires, became very popular in the 19th century.
