"Petite Quatrefoil"

SOLD Petite 10K Victorian Quatrefoil Onyx & Gold Ring

  • Sale
  • Regular price $395.00

The symmetry and balance of this onyx and gold quatrefoil ring look wonderful when pairing with bands or other stones (black goes with everything!). This design was used often in Victorian jewelry. It is found in art, architecture, heraldry and traditional Christian symbolism. The word quatrefoil means "four leaves", and was also worn for luck as well as for displaying religious piety.  When presenting with onyx, it was likely meant as a mourning ring. But don't let its small size fool you; the detail of the design is highly intricate and compelling! It is a classic piece worthy of any collection of antique jewelry.
