Edwardian Diamond Clover Ring
Your lucky charm
Edwardian pieces are known for their understated elegance. Jewellery of this period was soft and feminine in stark contrast to the heavy machine age jewellery of the late Victorian era.
Four generous old cut diamonds sit atop a platinum setting on a warm 18ct gold base.
Clover leaves were given as gifts and worn in the hopes of bringing the wearer good luck. Each of the leaves of the clover was meant to represent hope, wealth, love and luck.
"For each petal on the shamrock. This brings a wish your way. Good health, good luck, and happiness, for today and every day." -Irish Blessing
HOW TO WEAR:
Edwardians were also fashionistas ahead of their time. Rings were often stacked and decorated the finger from knuckle to knuckle. So take some fashion advice from these ladies and feel free to stack this lovely with any of your favourites. This ring would also make a perfect engagement ring as it can easily be worn everyday with its sturdy construction. The setting is very smooth would not catch on any clothing etc.
The ring is in great antique condition. There is some minor thinning at the bases of the ring where the hallmarks are located. As with any ring, with use, the band will eventually wear at which point some additional gold will need to be added. This ring however has quite some time before that will be needed. Hallmarks and makers mark are still readable
