A decorative cluster ring fom the Victorian era. Featuring a brilliant cut diamond individually set in a cut down style mount and encircled by additioanl diamonds in cut down settings. Crafted in silver and 18ct yellow gold.
As platinum was not yet used in jewellery, silver was a popular setting choice for diamonds, these pieces were inlaid with gold to avoid tarnish marks to the skin. Today, the mixing of precious metals is a design choice.
The Victorian era marked a time dedicated to religion and love. Common motifs in the jewellery of the time were birds, flowers anchors and stars: motifs with symbolic meaning.
