Gemstones commonly featured closed backs throughout the early 19th century, which is now a notable stylistic hallmark of the time! In turn, they were foiled so they retained their brightness and splendour.
Paste copies of precious gemstone stones, such as Citrine in this case, were highly popularised during the Georgian period! Her Citrine Paste has depth, warmth and character - sure to bring comfort and delight.

VERY GOOD: This Georgian 9ct Gold foiled Paste Citrine Pearl ring is in very good condition considering she is over 200 years old! Originally starting life as a clasp, she has been wonderfully converted into a super wearable ring, bringing this antique into the present day. Her Citrine Paste is highly saturated, sitting secure in its settings. All the original Pearls are secure and present, and have retained a subtle sheen. Due to her great age, her Paste does have some minor wear and some fleabites to her facets, however, these are only visible under close inspection. Her 9ct Gold is rich in tone, and evidence of the conversion is minimal. She sits comfortably on the hand and her smooth closed back ensures ease of wear. Don't miss out, we are sure this rare, incredible Georgian piece won't be around for long!
