During the Early Victorian period when the Industrial Revolution surged ahead Romantic Period jewelry was very sentimental. It often reflected the new love of a young couple.
Gemstones were often set in claw-like prongs or collet settings, a metal that encircled the outer rim of the gemstone, and were used in a wide variety during this period. The setting that this ring enjoys is very notable indeed. Additionally, giving a citrine stone or citrine jewelry as a gift can be a symbol of hospitality, friendship, hope, and happiness, which comes as no surprise with its sunny yellow countenance.
This ring is in 14k and boasts a sizable bezel-set citrine stone weighing 4.8ct. American in origin and currently a size 11, this ring may be used as-is if it fits, or may even be used as a pendant or chain extender. There are no excuses for this babe to not be in your collection!
