Special Jewelry Designs - Diamond Flower Rings & Antique, Vintage Fine Jewelry
Victoria's serpent motif was popular. Rings were ornate and had space to put
hair or a photo of a loved one. The lid of the ring could be raised. The lid was
covered with minute multi colored gems. Granulating gems with grains of gold,
made famous by the Etruscans were hugely popular. Rings were huge and eye
catching in the first half of this period. The rings followed a fixed style.
Floral and Fauna motifs were used. A huge leaf encircled with small diamonds or
a three leaved flower, or a sheaf of wheat in pearls were made into rings. Huge
gems were flaunted. It was a time for color and luxury.
