Antique Victorian Turquoise Forget-Me-Not Ring

Sale Pending  Item: 1510

It was not uncommon to find 19th century antique wedding rings made in a delicate design using turquoise, which symbolized the forget-me-not flower. This charming and delicate Victorian beauty was most likely just that. Six (6) cabouchon turquoise surrounding a faceted garnet and lovely scroll work on the shoulders. The underside contains a compartment that at one time was used to keep a tiny lock of hair from the one who gave this. The mystery of its earlier life brings magic to this ring and helps to keep it alive in the world of its next owner. As an engagement ring, an everyday ring or a wonderful gift to a loved one, this ring will continue its life for many years to come.
