SOLD Victorian Aquamarine Solitaire Ring
A beautiful and simple ring from the Victorian period, c1850s. The ring is made from 9ct gold and has a beautiful pale blue aquamarine set into a simple bezel setting. The aquamarine has a lovely rounded rectangular shape and the beautiful cut allows the stone to shine. The aqua is set in a pale yellow gold setting, whilst the shank has a slightly rosy hue. There is a possibility that the shank was changed in antiquity as it has been attached very simplistically, please see the photos. Such a pretty ring that looks very elegant on the hand.
