A beautiful Georgian era ring. A gorgeous ornate design, perhaps influenced by Halley's Comet which passed in 1835. Set with genuine rose cut diamonds in a cluster shape with fluted 'tail' design below. The face of this ring was likely originally a pin, and it seems was was converted to a ring around the Edwardian/Art Deco era - as the band of this ring is more modern and is made of solid platinum, a material that wasn't commonly used on the Georgian era. The split shoulder band has been soldered on, the face of the ring is sterling silver to the front with a hint of gold on the back.
All of the diamonds have been tested with a Presidium gemstone tester, and are guaranteed as real diamonds. All of the diamonds have small natural inclusions, and would have originally been foil backed. In the process of converting this ring the heat has destroyed the foil, which means that the diamonds now have a champagne brown look. In the photos, this is very much apparent, however in person this ring is still beautifully sparkly and the brown tone is not as noticeable. Take my word for it, that if you purchase this ring, you are going to be THRILLED when it arrives - it's so much more beautiful in person than the photos would have you believe!

It's very hard to tell carat weight of old rose cut stones, as all of these stones are closed back we can only provide an estimate unless we take the stones out (which we can't do due to disturbing the foil) but we estimate the diamond content of this ring totals approximately 0.60 of a carat. The middle diamond measures 4 x 4 mms in size, each of the five diamonds in the border are around 2 mm's in diameter, and there are six 1-2 mm diameter diamonds in the tail section too.
Size N (a medium finger size). US size 6 1/2. Unmarked - tests as a sterling silver face and platinum band. The ring weighs 4.5 grams. The face of the ring measures 2 x 1.5 cms in size.
In good antique condition. Please note the foil damage as mentioned above. The very top diamond is cracked but still secure. The ring is an early conversion so has signs of solder on the back. The band has been re-sized at some point with faint traces of this. 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.
