Belle Époque, Platinum, Peridot and Diamond Ring

SKU: ARB-527


Peridot and diamond ring, circa 1910. Peridot is a variety of the mineral olivine, and as that mineral’s name suggests, it comes in one colour – a rich, slightly yellowish green, with only minor variations. The earliest deposits of peridot were mined on the Isle of St John in the Red Sea, starting around 300BC, and later mediaeval examples can be found in many church treasures, often set in reliquaries. Peridot’s vivid colour was said to have a healing effect, which helped open the heart, and bring comfort in periods of depression and sadness. This antique circular-cut peridot shows an almost electric, bright green, which is beautifully set in a delicate Belle Epoque platinum mount set with antique circular-cut diamonds in stippled millegrain borders. The birthstone for August, this would make a wonderful birthday gift for anyone with an August birthday, or a striking and sophisticated choice for an engagement ring.


 Why I love it...


This ring is everything. It is truly stunning! The peridot is a stunning colourful. The ring is a great size, easy to wear. The craftsmanship is incredible, the setting is a mini masterpiece. An truly amazing piece of antique jewellery.
