REGARD: Victorian Acrostic Ring - The Three Graces
Black Opal pendant
Antique Regard rings are so wonderful, romantic and have such a charm of yesteryear and are becoming increasingly hard to find. Regard rings are so called because the first letter of each gemstone spells out the word "regard" with a Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, Ruby and a Diamond at the end. This particular Regard ring is from the Victorian era and was made in 1864.
The aquamarine cameo with facetted back represent four Cupids (putti) playing the part of vintagers...Mounted as a pendant within a rose diamond mille-grain border, hanging within an open frame of floral and leafy branches with a pear shaped diamond hanging below, it is attached by chains to the trumpet shaped flower heads and the suspension loop at the top, all diamond set. Cameo: 18th century style. Pendant: 1905. (re-pin)
