Georgian Topaz Diamond Ring
Although this 18th century English ring of 10k yellow gold has some of the typical characteristics of this period, finding one is not an easy task. Rings of the middle years of the 1700's were more likely than not to be flower designs such as the giardinetti type with colored gems and rose cut diamonds set open back or a cluster type ring. In addition, given its age, few of course have survived the long span of years.
Here we have a centered natural golden topaz set east west and flanked with two old mine cut diamonds. Please note the open work bridge and arched design of the shoulders. The 9 mm by 8 mm topaz is set closed back in a rub over bezel with a striking sun ray or basket weave pattern to the reverse. Set into the traditional silver, the estimated total diamond weight is .30 carats. This form of ring was produced in England during the middle period of the 18th century.
Date: Circa 1750 - 1780.
