Antique "Regard" half hoop ring

No Z30447 Circa 1825 $4,250
An antique gold acrostic "Regard" ring designed as a half hoop set with Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, Ruby and Diamond, in 18k.

In acrostic jewelry, the first letter of each gemstone is used to create a secret word or message that usually conveys endearment. "REGARD" and "DEAREST" were among the most popular words spelled out in stones during the nineteenth-century.

Napoleon Bonaparte was an admirer of acrostic jewelry and had commissioned several pieces for himself and for family members, some of which commemorated special events.
