Victorian, 18ct Gold, Natural Pearl Three-Stone Ring

SKU: ARB-409

£2,500

Freshwater pearl ring, late 19th century. Natural pearls are found in a number of different species of molluscs, and while the most famous varieties are found in our oceans, freshwater pearls have also been sourced for centuries in rivers and lakes around the world. Among the most famous examples of these are the rare and protected Scottish river pearls, which were favoured by Victorian jewellers working in the Arts and Crafts style, such as Archibald Knox, who designed the famed ‘Cymric’ jewels for Liberty. This ring is set with a beautifully matched trio of natural freshwater half-pearls of characteristic silvery lustre, their bases showing the concentric growth rings revealing their natural origins. A beautiful and simple design, comfortable on the hand, perfect for occasional wear.
