Antique Georgian 18k Gold, Rose Cut, Foil Backed Diamond Flower Engagement Ring
£1,750.00– Sold Out
This ring is a little piece of history. An early Georgian rose cut diamond ring. In our opinion it was made pre-1750 in France. The silver setting shows that the silver was shaped by much hammering, rather than being fashioned from sheets of silver which suggests pre-1750.
The diamonds are not matched, which is very indicative of early Georgian work. In that period diamonds were so hard to come by jewellers would fashion metal to fit the diamonds and not vice versa.
The hand cut foil-backed diamonds are set in silver, which is backed by an 18k gold shank. It would make a highly unique gift or very special engagement ring.
Care must be taken with foil backed rings, as water can damage the foil backed setting. This is not a washing up ring!
The size is currently G but we can re-size at no extra cost.
The approximate total carat weight is 1ct.
If you want to know the colour and clarity of the diamonds then this ring probably isn't the one for you!
