Story

Around 1775 an English jeweler developed a style of enameling which resulted in a smooth and translucent midnight or cobalt blue color. It soon became a fashion must among the royals and often sported applied diamonds upon the field.

Here we have a later Georgian (circa 1840) interpretation of this style ring in the form of an eternity or memorial band of 14 – 15k rose gold. Superb guilloché blue cobalt enamel covers the entire surface yet its translucency allows the intricate pattern of two different tiny star burst patterns to show through the deeply colored enamel. The enamel band is framed with gold borders each set with a row of half natural seed pearls (untested but assumed natural due to age and examination).

The ring is accompanied by its original Georgian brown leather box (with swivel hook clasp typical of the period) and dark cream colored silk interior. Written in script to the interior of one side of the top portion is “ Eliza” and to the other a date of “Feb 20 / 40” which perhaps indicates 1840 or that Eliza passed on at the age of 40 and that the fairly large sized ring was worn perhaps worn by a man.
