VERY GOOD: This rare Georgian 22ct Gold chrysoberyl solitaire ring is exquisite. Considering that this ring is over 215 years old, it is remarkable that she has remained in such good nick. The Chrysoberyl itself is fabulous, free from chips and is secure within its settings. There is a little antique solder mark on the corner of the settings gallery which is barely noticeable, nothing to worry about and does not distract or detract from its overall beauty. The ring is complete with a full set of rare Georgian hallmarks, assayed in London in 1805 - the year of the battle of Trafalgar!
