Antique Victorian carved half hoop ring set with five graduated oval cabochon opals, accented with rose cut diamond points in 14k yellow gold. Victorian carved half hoop rings are exquisite pieces of jewelry that emerged during the Victorian era, spanning from 1837 to 1901. The term "carved" refers to the detailed patterns that are meticulously engraved onto the surface of the ring. These carvings often include floral motifs and intricate scrolls, reflecting the ornate aesthetic of the Victorian era. Half hoop rings typically feature a row of gemstones, such as diamonds, sapphires, rubies, pearls, or in this case gorgeous opals set along the top half of the band.
Victorian carved half hoop rings were popular as engagement rings, wedding bands, or anniversary rings during the Victorian era. Today, Victorian carved half hoop rings are highly coveted by collectors and jewelry enthusiasts for their exquisite craftsmanship and historical significance.
