Victorian Seed Pearl & Gemstone Regard Acrostic Ring


Acrostic rings like this one use the secret language of gemstones to spell words of affection. Here, a ruby, emerald, garnet, amethyst, ruby and diamond spell "REGARD" while another row of pearls serves purely as decoration. The late 19th century was not an age of minimalism.
