The Late Victorian era was also referred to as the "Aesthetic Period". Conservatism and tradition were rejected. Jewels of this period were different from the previous types of jewelry. The jewels became simpler, lighter, smaller, less heavy, less dark, but more feminine. These jewels fitted with an active life.
This gorgeous ring is a perfect example of the simplicity and femininity that was involved during this time. For starters, the shoulders on this babe are soft and detailed, while the center, deliciously pink citrine boasts a carved rose in it. A ring that seems to have been made for Princess Belle in Beauty and the Beast, this is an amazing addition or any stack, collection, or even a gift for a lovely lady.
