Perennially perfect, a beauteous and scarce find, one which you'll never see the like of! This very early 19th century finger jewel has a delighting prettiness which talks of poetry and romanticism. A magically firey foiled natural Ruby framed by nine adorable olden days hand cut Diamonds in the traditional Georgian 'pie-crust' Silver setting on a foliate band of 18ct yellow Gold .
All original, like many old jewels this piece has a mystery all her own. The rosette Ruby and Diamond cluster appears to be older than the band, we feel dating to an earlier Georgian time and although we we appreciate her earlier creation, we date her from that later manifestation. It's not at all uncommon for a jewel to be re-imagined in this way and just adds to the interest for us.
The ring size is an 'M' or '6.25' and we'd rather not alter this due to the history of this piece. This little ring should be treated with care as the precious find she is.
