The British Isles had a distinctive pattern in some of their clustered gemstone rings between circa 1870-1890.
Call it the ruffle gallery, for beneath a gathering of gemstones, the gold work is scrolling and wavy. This particular ring dates to 1876.
The Three Graces has had hallmarked examples from 1866, 1886, 1872, 1873, just to list a few. Frequently they are garnet set, but may also be graced with other semi-precious gemstones.
Here, glowing rhodolite garnets form a flower with natural saltwater seed pearls on each side. Their purple and pink hues dance with color.
In yellow gold of 15k, the setting also boasts delicate designs on each shoulder. These garnets are not to be missed!
