An extremely rare and beautiful forget-me-not ring from the Georgian era, Circa 1830, crafted from 18ct Gold, Turquoise and a single old mine cut Diamond.
As Georgian rings go this one really is quite substantial. Weighing over three and a half grams it certainly commands a presence.
The vibrant Turquoise cabochons are the perfect contrast to the rich yellow Gold, and the pretty central Diamond will catch your eye come rain or shine.
The ring is in fantastic condition for something that's clearly been loved for over 200 years. The bright Turquoise gems are beautifully rounded and smooth to the touch with no damage whatsoever, and the old cut Diamond twinkles just as it would have when it was first made.
One of the most charming things about this ring is the delicate engraving to the shoulders which really brings this piece to life.
A must have jewel for any collector!

This ring is in excellent antique condition throughout! The Gold band is gorgeous. The delicate foliate engraving is still clearly visible and although it is nearly 200 years old only has the very lightest wear to the very back of the band. The Diamond and Turquoise gemstones are free from damage; the Turquoise beautifully smooth cabochons and the Diamond old mine cut twinkles beautifully.
The small empty compartment to the back of the ring would have once been a kind of locket, but has been lost with the sands of time. Of course you can't see this when worn, and you could have it replaced by a skilled craftsman if you so wished.
All in all this is a stunning, robust ring in exemplary condition that's ready to wear and enjoy!
