Antique Georgian Goddess: Chrysoberyl Diamond Ring
New Lower Price!!! Down from $5650! Finger rings were very much a part of the daily wear of a Georgian lady with a few of these Grande Dames wearing a ring on every finger. Here an impressive oval faceted chrysoberyl (13.5 mm by more than 9 mm) is set in the typical closed back and foiled setting of the time. Due to the nature of the setting the depth cannot be measured. Consequently the carat weight has been visually assessed and appears to be about 4 to 5 carats in weight.
Originally brought to England and Europe by the Spanish and Portuguese, the fiery gemstone is the color of pale chartreuse green similar to that of a crystal Pontarlier glass of absinthe diluted with water. A gemstone of high refractive index, it has remarkable shimmer and light Each of the twenty-two (22) graduated in size hand cut old mine and cushion cut diamonds which frames the glorious light green stone features that characteristic open culet. In all, the diamond surround has an estimated total diamond weight of .45 carats. As is typical, the top is silver over 15k yellow gold; the replaced later shank is of 10k yellow gold.
Important: This ring should not be in water for an extended period of time nor exposed to other liquids, cleaning products or harsh chemicals. If considering as an engagement ring, please keep this in mind.
