Victorian Pearl Trio Ring
Sold!

Throughout history, pearls have been one of the most coveted of all gemstones. In the centuries upon centuries before the invention of the cultured pearl, these organic gemstones were extraordinarily rare and highly prized. In the Georgian period, a strand of pearls of matched color and size could command a greater price than jewels set with diamonds, rubies, or emeralds. This Victorian era ring was made at a more egalitarian time in history and could have been worn by anyone who could afford to buy it. The ring features three luminous split pearls set within diamond shaped frames.
