A pretty Victorian daisy 'REGARD' and Fede 18 karat ring manufactured circa 1880. With lovely bright gem stones all mixed cut with a central rose cut diamond as the daisy centre. Fede rings display two hands clasped together in friendship, love or betrothal, from the Italian phrase ‘mani fede’ meaning hands joined in faith. With a hand either side to hold the daisy gemstone cluster, the finish used on the ring is an attractive brushed or satin finish, popular with the Victorians at this time.


A regard ring is a ring which has been set with a gemstone acrostic. The first letters of the gemstones correspond with the word “regard” – Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Amethyst, Ruby and Diamond – and are set in that sequence. First introduced by the French jeweller Mellerio in 1809, acrostic rings soon became very popular tokens of loving sentiments. Previously, Georgian acrostic jewellery shaped like padlocks with keys or hearts were decorated with gemstone acrostics as an open declaration of love.
