An unusual mid Victorian 12ct gold ring set with garnet doublets and garnets. Garnet and glass doublets were first used around 1850 when it was noted that molten glass would adhere to garnet. It was a popular imitation for all types of gems in many colours because the colour of the glass became the only colour that could be seen.In this case they were imitating emeralds. The two heart shaped garnets make this ring special. It would have been given as a token of love in 1866.
