An antique Victorian rolled gold REGARD acrostic ring, circa 1890, featuring five distinct, colorful paste gemstones strategically placed to communicate the secret message "REGARD." The round, faceted paste stones represent a ruby, emerald, garnet, amethyst and diamond, respectively; with the first letter of each spelling out the affectionate word. Set open back for maximum clarity and vibrancy, they are lined up in graduated succession in a pointed ovaloid outline and framed by a border of notched segments. Each separate notched segment is adorned with a stamped floral motif, leading on either side to triangular shoulders. It is in good antique condition. There is some discoloration to the interior of the shank and bezel, with some evidence of prior resizing. While the pastes exhibit noticeable surface wear, the majority of their faceting remains crisp and reflective. There is significant nibbling to the edges of the amethyst under magnification. Fashioned in rolled gold that tests as 10k.
Size 7.75
