Martha Washington Crystal Ring with Garnet

$185.00
SKU 26963

Mrs. Washington's fondness for garnets is evident from the number of necklaces, earrings, pins, hair ornaments and rings she assembled for herself and her daughter, Patsy (1757-1773), in the 1750s and 1760s.

A rose-cut diamond flower ring of Mrs. Washington in our museum collection is the inspiration for this sterling silver, garnet and crystal version. The original ring dating 1750-1775 with nine diamonds was considered an impressive display of taste and wealth. 

A small garnet in the middle surrounded by a cluster of eight crystals give this size a modern day look.  This ring comes in sizes 5-8.

Handmade by a Virginia artisan. Made in the USA.
