Victorian Pearl Bow Ring


In Western jewelry, the bow or knot has symbolized endless love and constancy as far back as 500 AD, when it was employed in Celtic rings. The sentimental Victorians loved the bow as a tidy metaphor for undying affection: it loops around itself in an eternal twist, forever and ever, never beginning and never ending. This Victorian bow ring is modeled in gold and set with seed pearls. The interior of one shoulder is engraved, “From Mother”.
