The Victorians loved sentiment, and often expressed this in jewelry. The REGARD ring is a classic example – the first letter of each stone spells out REGARD: Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, Ruby, Diamond. These rings were enormously popular – a discreet and romantic way of showing affection. They are becoming increasingly rare. This ring is a particularly good example, with a very finely made mounting and beautiful, richly colored stones.
