Historically, the language of flowers is the language of love and affection. This Georgian ring exemplifies the sentimental era of early 19th century jewelry in its depiction of a five-petaled flower.
Fashioned in silver set with eight rose cut diamonds (of .06 carats, I-J color SI2-I1 clarity) the lyrical flower arcs across the surface of black enamel.
Typical of the 1830's, chased and ornate floral and scrolling 18k gold work surrounds the oval and wends its way down the shoulders and sides. A three-part shoulder merges into one and transitions to a smooth back.
English in origin is hallmarked with the maker's mark of WE, possibly William Easton, working at this time.
