If you thought turning your engagement ring around on the subway was clever, feast your eyes on Victorian Coach Covers. Apparently travel coaches weren’t the safest form of transportation in the late 19th century, so elegant women with expensive earrings wore gold covers that snapped on over their diamonds. Problem solved!
The beautiful texture and pattern on the domed exterior is Etruscan Revival – a nod to the archeological discoveries of that time. The covers conceal two Old Mine cut diamonds weighing 3.09 ct. total, all suspended from two lever backs.
