This stunning and unusual ring dates to the late Victorian period, c1890, and is made from heavy 18ct gold. The ring has been fully carved all the way around and specifically depicts two griffins, one either side of the centre stone. Griffins are an amalgamation of an eagle and a lion and symbolise courage and boldness. Those represented here are beautifully carved and flank an off square bright green lab emerald. The emerald is very likely a replacement to the original stone and looks majestic in its white gold setting.
Lab emeralds are those emerald gemstones that have all the same properties of a natural emerald, but have been produced in a forced environment.
