Stuart Crystal Ring

Stuart Crystal Ring

C.1700. In this beautiful Stuart crystal ring, the original gold ciphers are intact under the clear rock crystal quartz. The crystal is faceted step cut, and reflect light beautifully. It is set in sterling silver and would have originally been part of buttons or cuff links which was later converted to a ring with 14k gold shank. Stuart Crystal jewelry is rare and highly collectible. They were produced in England under the silent support of the monarchy after the execution of King Charles I in 1649. His Loyal Stuart followers wore Stuart crystal jewelry bearing his initials, miniature portrait, or lock of hair. This tradition continued into the 18th century.
