Darling Dearest Ring
Our Darling Dearest ring was very much inspired by the ever so sentimental Georgian and Victorian eras where outwardly proclamations and displays of love were not well received by the public. So what was one to do? Instead, those in love opted to give gifts of flowers or jewellery and in them were hidden meanings and messages.
The Dearest ring derives its name from the first letter of each stone set into the ring—Diamond, Emerald, Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Tanzanite. Your own secret love letter to your beloved.
While popular tokens of love, Dearest rings today can mean so much more than that in our modern world. While they can most definitely be used as alternative wedding bands/rings, they could also be used as tokens of friendship, a gift or love letter to yourself or worn as a promise ring.
The Darling Dearest ring features seven 2mm gemstones (including old cut diamond, emerald, amethyst, ruby, blue sapphire and tanzanite) set into a closed bezel cup with petal detailing on the underside and a milgrain border accenting the stones. On the shank features a double-band design with notched shoulder details.

A note on gold colour*
As typical with antique and vintage pieces, the gold karat (9kt, 14kt, 18kt, etc) may not appear the same way as modern gold does. Oftentimes these pieces will sway a little rosier in tone. This is a trait of older jewels that we have come to love. We will always, to the best of our knowledge, describe the gold tone in all of our listings, please take note of this when placing your order.
You are always welcome to get in touch to request more photos/video of whichever piece you have your eye on.
Returns will not be accepted if the gold tone is not as you expected.
