Victorian Garnet Carved Half-Hoop
Elegant Victorian carved half-hoop ring set with three superb gemstones: two antique cushion cut diamonds flank a bright, blood red pyrope garnet. It's crafted in 18ct gold and features exquisite engraved detailing to the gallery and shoulders. The diamonds total around 1.5 carats and display excellent colour and clarity, with further diamond accents around each of the principal stones. English, circa 1870.
This style of ring has been made, and engraved, by hand in Hatton Garden (London's jewellery quarter) for well over 150 years. This one's an early example, and the technique has been passed down generation after generation of jewellers - largely unchanged.

We offer detailed and accurate condition reports on each listing. These pieces are antique, vintage, or pre-loved, often over 100 years old so they're going to have lived a life. A healthy patina and the odd scuff/scrape are quite normal... it's part of their charm! Everything we present has been checked over by our jeweller and should be good for wear for many years to come (unless otherwise stated) but please remember to treat them with appropriate care and consideration for their age.
