A sumptuous Georgian Garnet and Diamond ring crafted in 18ct Gold, full of the grace and splendour of a bygone age...
The Georgians really did know how to seduce, didn't they? With glossy cherry red facets and glimmering pear-shaped rose cut Diamonds, this ring enthralls and delights!
It's made from 18ct rose coloured Gold and has Silver settings around the Diamonds- as is typical of antique Georgian jewellery.
As always it's the fine details of this ring that makes our hearts skip a beat. The three-pronged detail to each shoulder and the delicately patterned band is so feminine! And the underside of the setting is just as beautiful as the top!
Georgian jewellery is becoming increasingly difficult to find, and as a result?.. We all love it even more! Extremely beautiful, highly coveted, and a dream on the finger, this ring will is really the thing of dreams!

VERY GOOD: This sumptuous Georgian Garnet and Diamond ring is really an enchanting jewel! Considering her great age she's in very good condition and can be worn an enjoyed right away. The Garnet itself is a glorious deep purpley-red, with flashes of rasberry and pink within. Despite not being foiled is quite luminous the facets light up beautifully as you move! The gem has a beautiful sparkle and only very light abrasions to the facet edges, as you might expect of a 200 year old ring! As with most Georgian rings the band is quite thin (by design) and can be worn regularly with care. (No gardening or DIY please!)
The back of the setting is has acquired some reasonable wear and tear with age. If you look closely you'll see right through the setting to the garnet inside on both the top and the bottom and this is very likely the result of the ring being worn with rings on both sides for quite some time. The ring is still very much structurally sound, and of course, the damage can't be seen when the ring is worn.
It is possible to have this refurbished but to us, this wear and tear is as much a part of the history of the ring as the delicious gems. We've left this remarkable Georgian ring precisely as we found it so that you can decide if you'd like to have it refurbished or not. (If it is something you'd be interested in we can recommend some extremely talented artisan in the UK and the US)
