An exceptional Georgian ring.
This Georgian rose cut diamond ring is solid 18K yellow gold and fine silver of museum quality.
This beautiful Georgian ring is designed as a central panel of foil backed large double rose cut diamonds surrounded entirely by a single rose cut diamond border. The rose cut diamonds glitter gracefully at every angle as they catch the light.
Each lovely diamond is set in fine sterling silver as was always the case in the Georgian period. Platinum had not been used for jewelry making yet and white gold was not invented. The rest of the ring is solid 18K yellow gold.
The shank of the ring is quite baroque and ornate in style with scroll like motifs and piercings.
This lovely hand made 18th Century Georgian diamond ring is in excellent condition. It is uncommon to find 18th century jewelry in perfect condition like this ring.
Acquired from a high end estate in Napoli Italy, it is most likely that this ring was originally made in Switzerland.
The top of the ring measures 1 1/16" long and is 5/8" wide (27mm x 16mm). It's a large luxurious ring.
In total it weighs 8.99 grams.
The hand cut fine rose cut diamonds set in this ring are as follows:
* One rose cut diamond approximately 4.9mm wide by 3.5mm deep weighing approximately 0.75 carats
* One rose cut diamond approximately 4.7mm wide by 2.5mm deep weighing approximately 0.50 carats
* One rose cut diamond approximately 4.7mm wide by 2.7mm deep weighing approximately 0.45 carats
* 18 2.2mm by 1.5mm rose cut diamonds weighing approximately 6 points each
* 50 rose cut diamonds measuring approximately 1.8mm wide by 1.1mm deep each weighing approximately 2.5 points.
This makes the total Carat Weight of Diamonds in the ring 4.03 carats.
The underside of the ring is exquisitely decorated which was often the case for the most exclusive jewelry of the time.
Currently this ring is a size 5 USA sizing.
An astonishing piece, this 18th Century Georgian ring could easily be placed on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum where it would fit in perfectly with the exquisitely rare jewelry on display.
I can only imagine the places it's been and how beautiful it looked at night under candle light at the time....

The photos form part of the description. Like all colored stones there is a color variation that occurs in different lighting conditions both inside but also outside, even the time of day can make the color of a stone appear a little different. We do our best to show colors as we see them. Color perception is highly individual and some people can perceive more colors than others, also colors can appear somewhat different on different screens and devices due to variations in screen hardware and device display settings.
