The use of symbolism has been an important part of adornment since the first cave man or woman hung a carved or shaped rock around their neck for the sake of beauty. What better way to protect oneself, to project outwardly one’s beliefs and affiliations or to project strength and power than to display its symbol as a piece of jewelry. Whether trying to communicate overtly or covertly, symbols speak louder than words.

Shields were often seen as a symbol or status and protection, especially during the Victorian era. This stunning ring features braided details on the band and boasts a shield in the center, all in the richest gold.
