Thirteen years after the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign, astronomers Jean Foucault and Armand Fizeau accomplished something truly beautiful. They were the first to take detailed photographs of the moon through a telescope. Something so mysterious and unknown, was now a little less so.

Also during the early Victorian Era, jewelers were making rings that appeared celestial. Blue enamel was a very popular medium at the time often set with twinkling antique cut white diamonds. Historically, this specific shade of blue represented royalty so the intention was to make the wearer feel like a queen. We think that these rings may have always been inspired by the new astronomical advancements- there is no dying how the appear like stars twinkling in the night sky.

This magnificent Victorian ring is as heavenly and awe inspiring as the first photo of the moon. It’s deep royal blue enamel face pops against the dazzling 1.2 carats of old mine cut diamonds. The stones are exceptionally beautiful, and the French enamel is stunning. A once in a lifetime treasure.
