Fabulous Early Georgian Emerald Ruby Ring
The Three Graces does not typically come across examples of early Georgian jewelry every day. Nonetheless, the Fates were smiling upon us with the discovery of this fantastic early ring circa 1750.
The entire piece is beautifully appointed. The reverse and the shank are as gorgeously embellished as is the front. The reverse is deeply chased and incised with three types of flowers (one is perhaps a rose) and leaves. The ornate shank is patterned and detailed in undulating sections – even the top and bottom of the band is decorated.
The ring is 15k rose gold with a silver top set with the rubies and emeralds in yellow gold bezels and the diamonds in silver. Centermost is a natural emerald 4 mm by 3.7 mm surrounded at the cardinal points by four (4) natural rubies interspersed with four (4) rose cut diamonds. At the shoulders two (2) cabochon rubies in yellow gold bezels are seated in castellated cups of silver. More so, please note the superb split shank with tiny scroll connection points to the cluster.
Date: Circa 1750.
Historical Note: The Georgian period ran through the reign of the four King George's in England, from 1714 to almost 1840.
Measurements: 9/16 of an inch (1.3 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 3/16 of an inch (0.4 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 4.8 grams (3.1 dwt).
Ring Size: US 6-1/4 (UK M; Euro or Int. Circum. 52.5 mm; Int. Dia. 16.7 mm; Japan 12). We recommend that this ring be sized down using inserts. It can be sized up with a blank section at the back. Ring sizing information.
Condition: Excellent for its great age; slight reinforcements to several bezels; surface wear to all rubies and to the emerald which has one edge chip visible upon close inspection. Overall very fine for its age and type.
Note: All gemstones and diamonds are tested in our gemological laboratory. All metals are acid tested.
