The History of the Cluster Ring
Uncover the Cluster Ring's fascinating past
Introducing the cluster; painted with a kaleidoscope of awe-inspiring sapphires or decorated with the refined grace of diamonds. A tribute to craftsmanship and joie de vivre, Black Finch cluster rings are more than just a piece of bling. But where did they come from, this jewellery delight? Let's delve into history, to stories untold.
The design legacy, a testament to the beauty of human creations, can be traced all the way back to Georgian fashion. Skilled artisans crafted precious bands adorned with jewels for the fortunate to express their superior grace. Initially cluster rings were heavier in design, featuring a round or oval central stone surrounded by a halo of gemstones.
Fast forward to the 20th century, cluster rings gained popularity. With the unique and artful use of metals, setting techniques and groupings of gemstones, designs became more sophisticated, imaginative and whimsical. Jewellers began experimenting with geometric cuts of gemstones in abstract ways that incorporated diamonds and coloured stones in contrasting fashion. From Hollywood stars to everyday wear, the 20th century marked a time where cluster rings became a staple, timeless and chic.
