Queen Anne was the last of the Stuart monarchs in England, the daughter of James II, and granddaughter of Charles I.

This splendid gold ring has a Stuart crystal set horizontally with pink foil on a lovely floral gold shank.

The Stuart is unusual as it does not contain swirling gold cyphers.

The stepped table-cut rectangular Stuart crystal (12 x 15mm) is closed-set in a gold bezel over the pink foil, which is visible under the crystal. The decorative gold shank has pierced shoulders bearing floral decoration, joined to a concave, tapering gold band at the verso.

It is currently sized between 7 - 7 ½.

A rare commemorative of the House of Stuart, Charles I of England, who died in 1649, Stuart crystal pieces were only created in England and are highly prized. You will be wearing history on your hand.

Stuart crystal jewelry was first introduced as commemorative of Charles I of England who died in 1649. These crystals continued to be worn by Stuart supporters through to the death of Queen Anne in 1714, the last Stuart monarch. This type of crystal work was created in England during the 1600’s as wonderful Stuart memento mori pieces; English, 17th century. Charles II, born May 29, 1630 – died February 6, 1685, reigned from the Restoration until his death.
