About

Acanthus leaves cover the shoulders of this 19th century Victorian ring. They bloom with a powerful meaning of enduring life, healing and regeneration. Acanthus leaves were used on Corinthian columns in Greece. The same flowing forms are seen frequently in Georgian and Victorian jewelry, periods of history when sentiment and floral symbolism were part of life as was mans' connection to nature.
This ring has presence. The leaves are deeply engraved in repousse, a form of engraving in which the metal is pushed forward from the back and raising it from the surface. The signet front shows handsome flowing initials which add to the story. A person appreciated this handsome ring and passed it on. Now 140 years later, it is ours. Made in sterling silver, it can be worn by men and women and is a worthy addition when worn with other interesting rings be they gold or silver. Excellent condition. Size 7 and can be sized up or down. From the Glorious Antique Jewelry Collection
