Here we have an antique Victorian chrysoberyl and garnet three stone ring!

This feminine ring dates back to the mid-1800's and is set with a rare gemstone - chrysoberyl. The chrysoberyl has an "Old Mine Cut" and is preserved in a superb state. In Victorian times, chrysoberyl was used in engagement rings due to it's scarcity and high value. Commonly such engagement rings (as this one) were also set with garnets and diamonds to accent the chrysoberyl.

Chrysoberyl is a rare and exotic group of gemstones first discovered in 1789 by renowned geologist, Abraham Gottlob Werner. The chrysoberyl species includes a few different gemstone varieties. The most common variety is a transparent to translucent form colored by iron, which typically occurs in shades of yellowish to light-green. This is typically the only variety traded as just 'chrysoberyl', while other varieties of chrysoberyl are traded under very specific names, which include both chrysoberyl cat's eye (cymophane), the chatoyant variety of chrysoberyl; and alexandrite, a rare color change variety named after Russian Czar Alexander II. In very rare cases, color change chrysoberyl may also exhibit a cat's eye effect, which is classified as 'cat's eye alexandrite'. The name 'chrysoberyl' was originally derived from the Greek words, 'chryso' and 'beryl', meaning 'golden' and 'green', respectively (source: gemselect.com).

The crown of the ring is accented with two lovely gold flowers on the both sides from the three stones. On the left and on the right from the central stone we have two foiled garnets which have a vivid purple shine.

This ring will make a great gift for someone special or your-beloved-self. It is also a perfect third anniversary ring choice for those antique jewelry addicts amongst us.
