There is perhaps no ring more iconic or timeless than the simple gold band. In the Victorian Era, rings with the word "Mizpah" on them were worn by couples and lovers separated by war or travel. Mourning rings from the same period were marked with the name of the deceased and date of their death in either gold or enamel. During the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts periods, rings of gold set with amber, opals, garnets, moonstones, and pearls were embraced, while the Edwardians favored white gold that had been filigreed.
