This early 19th-century Georgian rose & table-cut Diamond ring is one of the most exquisite pieces we have laid eyes on here at Lillicoco. Boasting nineteen table-cut Diamonds in a mosaic formation that glistens from every angle, she's a testament to the craftsmanship of the time. Set in Silver to highlight their brilliance, this ring is complete with a 9ct Gold shank, featuring ornate open work.
Introduced into Europe in the 1400s, the table-cut was the first widely recognised Diamond cut! A popular choice by Georgians, Diamonds were the gemstone to use in night-time parties of the elite until midway through the 18th century. A fine piece of history, this antique Diamond ring is a collector's dream!

EXCELLENT: This early 19th-century Georgian rose & table-cut Diamond ring is in excellent condition. For a ring of great age, she is in exceptional condition. This rare and beautiful Georgian Diamond ring was crafted from an old Diamond button. It was common throughout the 1800s that Diamond buttons were no longer the fashion "flavour of the day" and were re-imagined into more wearable items such as earrings and rings. We can tell from the classic 3-pronged openwork leaf motif shoulders and a somewhat simplistic tapering band that this is an antique conversion, and is not to be confused with a modern-day conversion ring. These original late 18th Century and 19th Century Diamond button rings are so rare and highly collectible amongst avid Georgian jewellery enthusiasts and collectors. Each table-cut Diamond is secure in its Silver setting, which remains bright with a subtle patina. Her ring band is not perfectly round, however, she still sits comfortably on the hand!
