Antique Georgian 18ct Gold Engraved Royal Blue Enamel 5 Pearl Band Ring / Size O 1/2

$605.00

A beautiful solid 18ct yellow gold ring, a lovely old late Georgian piece made in the 1830's. Two beautiful ribbons of dark navy enamel wrap around five natural pearls settled in rich 18ct gold. Not to be outdone, the gold itself has been elaborately decorated, carved on the sides of the gallery. A truly classic late Georgian era ring which displays the elegance and craftsmanship we all crave in a Georgian piece. It is so classic right down to those two ribbons of royal blue enamel, a type of enamel invented and popularized in the Georgian era.

In the back of the locket we see a locket compartment, the glass is missing but you could potentially have a jewellery make a new frame and glass insert.

Size O 1/2 (a medium finger size). US size 7 1/4. Unmarked but fully tests as solid 18ct gold. The ring weighs 3.4 grams. Center pearl measures 4mm and the outside pearls measure 2mm. The pearls are assumed natural due to age and appearance

In good antique condition. The enamel looks very good to the naked eye, but there is small pitting that is visible under a 10x loupe. The only real eye visible damage is a few small flakes off one shoulder, as is visible in the photos. Due to the great age of the ring the pearls are sunk down some in their settings, and under a loupe there are some circular rings from the sinking down. As is visible in the photos, one pearl is darker than the others. Looking at it under a microscope all of the pearls look to be original, and the different shade of that particular pearl may be original or may have gradually changed over time. It is noticeable in person, though I think the difference is more pronounced in the pictures. Engraving on the gold is a slightly worn. Please see the photos. Will be sent in a lovely gift box but not the one pictured, as this is my display box.

Please be aware that we used a macro lens to photograph our item close up and allow you to see details, this may make them appear bigger on the screen than in person, so please made sure you read the dimensions and weights listed for clarification.
