Large Cabochon Garnet & Diamond Victorian Ring

17 Admirers

This ring makes a huge statement on the hand. It is a big cabochon garnet surmounted by a diamond set bug. The Victorians were rather fond of bugs in jewellery. There are lots of different versions of the bug fashion which are fun to collect. They were popular from 1860 to 1880 in garnet or enamel settings, but the fashion continued in a more delicate form thereafter.
This example has a locket behind the garnet.
