A 4.75ct faceted oval-cut imperial topaz is claw-set in a beautifully detailed 18ct gold setting, a true hallmark of the Victorian era. The Victorians were fascinated by colourful and unusual gemstones which they often set unadulterated by diamonds in decorative settings to showcase these glittering curiosities. The topaz is enhanced by ornately engraved decorations on the shoulders which taper outwards as they lead up to the head of the ring emphasising its size. The honey-coloured stone and gold setting complement one another making this ring very easy on the eye. This ring is suitable for daily wear.
