Story

The aesthetics of mid-18th century rings coalesces into a remarkable jewel for the hand.

At the center resides a deep, cabochon garnet with wine-red hues and rich saturation. The cabochon measures 7 mm in diameter.

Rose-cut diamonds surround the pyrope garnet in a halo or cluster. Typical of the period, no two are alike. Diamond cutting was an entirely different art form then, all hand polished. Each diamond has its own personality and quirky presence.

On each side of the cluster, two more diamonds are set. All stones are closed back and foiled beneath for brilliance and refraction. The frame of diamonds is placed in rub-over silver, the two side diamonds in a pinched collet mount, and the inner stone a plain bezel.

Pay special attention to the reverse. That ridged pattern is often referred to as a sun ray pattern, basked back, or basket weave design. It was common in the middle of the 18th century and when authentic, it is a resource for dating.

The setting is silver for the diamonds, and 18k yellow gold for the remainder. Due to its great age, we do not recommend this ring for an engagement ring or everyday ring, but it is fine for occasional wear.

Provenance: From a private collection, this was purchased from The Three Graces in 2003.

THE FINE PRINT

Due to the nature of antique & vintage jewelry, many diamond and gemstone weights are calculated by measurements, not removed. Actual weights are noted in the item's description. Grading of diamonds and gemstones may vary slightly when removed.

HONESTY

Being as honest as possible about the items we represent for sale is our ultimate goal! Our pricing is industry recognized as fair and equitable with value as the byword.

Measurements: Diameter is 9/16 of an inch and 5/16 of an inch high. Weight of 4.1 grams.
