Georgian Enamel, Diamond & Pearl Ring

2,800.00

This ring is a classic example of Georgian jewelry design, and was made c.1790 – 1800.  Cobalt blue enamel sets off a cluster of tiny rose cut diamonds which surround a single pearl. The enamel navette is bordered by a row of seed pearls, and held in a frame of 18k yellow gold. The band, likely a nineteenth-century replacement, is crafted in 14k yellow gold. Though no engraved messages explicitly state this ring’s original meaning, it was likely intended as a mourning ring, as seed pearls are sometimes representative of tears.

This ring is in good antique condition, with small chips at the edges of the enamel and visible solder seams on the underside of the ring (cannot be seen when ring is being worn.)  It is presently a US size 6 ½, and can be resized on request.
