english dearest 9k gold acrostic ring


The Story

A colorful vintage English made ring, perfect for showing your love. Made in 1972, this acrostic ring uses the first letter of each gemstone: Diamond, Emerald, Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire, and Tourmaline, to spell out the word DEAREST. Set in 9 karat yellow gold, the piece pops with its bright colors. 

Acrostic rings were first introduced in the early 1800s and shortly after became a popular way of expressing one's loving feelings. Perfect worn alone or stacked with other rings, it's a unique way to show your love.

Highly collectible, antique and vintage acrostic jewelry is a rare and special find.
