  • Description

A popular and very romantic antique "witches heart" ring, dating to the Victorian era, mid-late 1800's! The ring is crafted in 9ct gold and is a warm rose colour with a subtle yellow tint. The ring looks to have been remodelled at some stage of its life - the witches heart possibly started its life as a Victorian stick pin, or as part of a brooch, and has been converted to a ring later down the decades. The witches heart is adorned with gold tendrils, scrolls and a charming flower accented with a cab turquoise (the turquoise is a later addition!). It is resting on a 3.20mm wide band which has a soft round profile. Stamped inside band with "9CT", denoting 9ct gold.

The heart symbol found its way into jewellery in the 15th century. Some of the different styles included the witch’s heart, with its bottom curved to one side, which was initially worn as an amulet in ancient times to safeguard against evil eyes, and from witches stealing milk or harming newborn babies. Moving forward into the romantic Victorian period, lovers gifted each other with witch’s hearts as a love token, implying that they’d been “bewitched” with love.

A gorgeous witches heart conversion ring steeped with endearing history. A perfect gift for someone special!
