DATE: Victorian, c.1880

A rare and beautiful antique Acrostic ring, the principal stones spell out the popular romantic sentiment "ADORE" - taking the first letter of each stone to make up the secret message. Amethyst, Diamond, Opal, Ruby and Emerald. This is a particularly fine example, with a cluster of diamonds framing the acrostic message. Modelled in 18k yellow gold and silver, the shoulders display scrolled detailing - very typical of the late Victorian era.
