History of the Belcher ring (Circa 1850-1890): Although the dates are Victorian, this is a uniquely American style, named after American designer Thomas Belcher. The defining feature is how the stone is secured into the ring -- using prongs or claws that are cut into the shank of the ring, so that the stone does not extend above the circumference of the shank. A secondary characteristic is that most Belcher-style mountings have a round dip between the prongs at their base. The closest European counterpart is the flush-set “gypsy” mounting. It is a sturdy style, and because the stone sets low into the ring, it is less likely to catch on things.
