Huge technological advances during the Victorian era also bore a notable influence on the styles and motifs celebrated in jewelry design, the techniques used to cut stones, and made new and more exotic gemstones and materials possible. Hence, the Victorian period was and remains one of the most exciting times in the history of jewelry design and making.
One of the most beloved color-ways in Georgian and Victorian jewelry was the harsh bite of turquoise, alongside the sultry simmer of a rich garnet cabochon. This ring is such a lovely example, dated 1968, in the Victorian style.
