Sometimes called a "boat ring" for the smooth marquise shape of the setting, five stone rings with a tapered face like this were very popular in Victorian England, carrying over into the Edwardian period as well. The graduated stones create a shape with a central focal point as well as flattering finger coverage - a ring like this is a wonderful choice for an engagement ring or a wedding band - or for the efficient jewelry lover, both in one!

Buttery 18k gold holds a mix of old mine, old European, and modern brilliant cuts. The centre stone was more than likely a later replacement, but the four side stones are consistent with the age of the ring, when it also was not uncommon to choose stones based on what was available at the jeweller's bench as opposed to ensuring each stone was perfectly matched. There is also evidence that the ring has been resized, which has also caused some of the British hallmarks to be worn away.

The inside of the band has been chamfered into a comfort fit, making the ring a very easy piece to wear everyday. A little sparkle and a lot of warm gold make this a perfect piece to stack as well.
