Late Victorian Leaf-Patterned Baby Ring Necklace

$250.00
About Details

Baby rings were a standard accessory for the offspring of well-appointed Victorian families, and advances in industrial technology were able to provide precious, tiny items of jewelry for middle-class babies by the turn of the century. We find these minute jewels irresistible, despite being far too small for us to wear, so we hang them on necklaces for a more democratic fit. We like the idea of giving one of these necklaces to an expectant mother, as a piece of jewelry she'll be able to share with her child for years to come. This particular late Victorian ring is cast in rose gold, studded with two tiny pieces of turquoise, and hangs from an 18" filled gold chain.
