Georgian Pearl Diamond & Enamel Cluster Ring
Georgian era jewelers had a penchant for enamel decoration. Several types of this ornamentation fall under the label of enamel work. One of the more interesting is that of guilloché in which fine lines are cut into a metal and then enameled. The lines under the colored, translucent enamel layer give depth to the composition and increase the visual effect.
Here we see that cobalt blue guilloché enamel used to its best advantage in a cluster ring of 18k yellow gold. A rose cut diamond with a pinched silver collet is centered within an oval plaque background of that brilliantly colored enamel with a white enamel border. A lovely surround of seventeen (17) half natural freshwater pearls (untested but guaranteed to be natural) embraces the perimeter with sheen and luster akin to moonlight. All in the typical Georgian manner of being set closed back and foiled.
Important: Foiled jewelry should not be exposed to water for any extended period of time nor soaked in any other liquid. In addition, avoid steam cleaning.
