A charming Victorian ring. This ring features two gorgeous diamond framed hearts, one set with a pigeon’s blood ruby and one set with a deep blue sapphire. The hearts are tied together by a diamond-encrusted ribbon. Double heart rings such as this were popular romantic symbols of love in the mid-to-late Victorian era, with the two hearts representing the couple being forever intertwined. This lovely antique piece would make the perfect non-traditional Victorian engagement ring.
