Check out this beautiful Edwardian ring that was purchased by Gem Gossip fan, Trevor. He is an antique jewelry enthusiast and has been collecting for quite some time. The recent ring acquired (pictured) has quickly become one of his favorites. It is all done in platinum, with a mine cut center diamond, which is over a half carat. He purchased the ring on eBay. Amongst his other rings in his collection, a few favorites include a ring once owned by the last empress of Iran, as well as a GIA certified .60 pear cut diamond ring. In the works for Trevor is a special project he is excited about. A family heirloom brooch is being fully restored–sounds like a story that needs to be added to our “Family Heirlooms” category!
Trevor says when he is searching for antique jewelry he looks for anything unusual or eye-catching, pieces with filigree work is a plus! Diamonds that are colored, rather than white are something he looks for as well.
We thank Trevor for sharing a peek into his antique treasure trove of a collection. Trevor says, “The thing I love about Gem Gossip is that I get to see some amazing finds, stories and jewelry pieces from all over. I also like the information about antique stores that are visited and adventures. It’s very interesting.” Thanks Trevor, and there will be more adventures to read about in the future!
