I’d first heard about regard rings during a lecture on the history of jewellery many years ago. I’ve started to research them and was surprised to find there’s hardly anything documenting regard rings, which were popular in Edwardian and Victorian times.
Regard rings were an early form of Victorian and Edwardian engagement ring with a row of five stones that spelt out the word regard – ruby, emerald, garnet, amethyst, ruby and diamond.
I really love the idea of championing the return of regard rings so I’ve created my own design! I also think there’s so much fun to be had spelling out different words, names and meanings to create a completely bespoke and unique ring design. You can find out more on my blog including an A – Z of precious and semi-precious stones.
