Mid 18th C. Georgian Garnet & Diamond Ring
A finger ring from the 18th century is a portable treasure to wear and pass on as an heirloom. This particular form of antique ring of silver and yellow gold is typically English of the years 1700 to 1750. Quite archetypal in configuration – the basket weave or sunburst patterned back, a shank ending with tiny upturns of the gold when viewed underneath and the position of the gemstones, i.e. central gem set east west with two side accents diamonds or gems mark it as clearly Georgian. Jewelry from this era in any fine condition is difficult to come across in today’s marketplace, let alone in as excellent condition as is displayed by this ring.
A glorious flat cut natural garnet in a horizontal profile is foiled and set closed back within a bezel of 15k yellow gold. A brace of old mine cut diamonds set in silver (no other white metal was in existence at the time) handsomely flanks each side of the lushly colored garnet. Gentle sweeping curves characterize the sides as they segue into a silken golden shank.
