Story

Most people are unaware of the existence of the chrysoberyl gem. Well known in the 18th century as a result of New World mining explorations by the Spanish and Portuguese, the gleaming stone was readily adapted for use in jewelry. The fiery chrysoberyl is the color of pale chartreuse green similar to that of a crystal Pontarlier glass of absinthe diluted with water.

This superb Georgian cluster ring is set closed back in silver with the ten (10) original gems. It is difficult to conceive of such extraordinary craftsmanship which can pavé set the faceted stones so tightly and perfectly considering all the gems are cut, polished and set by hand. Split shoulders and a smooth as silk shank are of 10k yellow gold. Our excellent photographs are simply unable to do adequate justice in translating the amazingly refractive and sparking green of the 18th century chrysoberyls.

Date: 1780.
