Unworn "Adore" ring with diamond & coloured stones from our workshop
Hardly any other epoch produced such diverse, symbolic and constantly varied pieces of jewellery with romantic significance as the 19th century. And hardly any society was as inventive and imaginative as the Victorian. One particular type of romantic jewellery inspired us to create the present ring model: so-called acrostic rings, which conveyed hidden messages through the selection of their various gemstones, and which, for all their popularity, have become very rare today. The message of our ring is based on the type of the so-called Adore ring. The message of our ring is based on the type of the so-called Adore ring, which represents the word encoded by the first letters of its gemstones: Amethyst (amethyst), Diamond (diamond), Opal (opal), Ruby (ruby), Emerald (emerald). Translated, the word means "to love devotedly," and was one of the most popular messages to spell out in the form of precious stones in the Victorian era. We have had the five gemstones set in a ring of high karat gold, based on a turn of the century design. Its slender rail and ornamental shapes form a delightful, modern contrast to the multitude of colours. What's more, all the stones are set in such a way that the ring can be worn perfectly in everyday life - in an age when its message is more than ever a coded secret known only between the giver and the recipient.
