Jane Austen Replica Ring
Only three pieces of jewelry are known to have belonged to Jane Austen; this is a replica modeled on one of those rare artifacts, her iconic ring, a gold band set with an oval turquoise-colored stone. Austen’s ring is thought to have been created between 1750 and 1800. Although a curator at Jane Austen House Museum in Hampshire calls it “quite plain and humble,” it might also be characterized as the essence of antique and modern sensibilities.
A further history of the ring, according to the curator:
"It is not known who gave Jane the ring and this raises many questions. Was it from a brother as a present? Was it from a secret admirer? Or did she simply buy it for herself, a worthy treat for all her success and hard work? And if so, did she design it?
This replica ring is made from gold-toned metal; the oval turquoise-colored stone reflects the oval shape of the original.
- Sterling silver.
- 18k gold plating and turquoise stone.
