Circa 1820 this antique Georgian rose-cut diamond ring is in exquisite condition, featuring open-backed cut-down collet settings in sterling silver backed by gold for the glittering champagne-tinted stones. Designed as a delicate florette flanked by leaflets with a simple split-shoulder shank, it epitomizes all the romantic charm of the era. A very comfortable ring on the finger. The open back makes this ring easily wearable on a daily basis, without the usual concern of Georgian rings with foiled stones, which can easily darken after water immersion or exposure to oils and lotions. Though I still advocate removing antique rings for manual labor or intense activity. Measuring approximately 1/2" north to south and 7/8" east to west on a curve across the face. Currently size 7 and resizable at least two full sizes. Please convo me before purchase if you are interested in the details of our sizing service. Diamond setting evolved in the late 18th and early 19th century from the traditional closed-back cups and cut-down collets previously used to experimentation with open-backed settings for better quality gems, a technique known 'à jour', or 'open to the day'. The cut-down collet allowed a tight fit, especially important for foiled or irregularly shaped stones; but as diamond sources increased with new mine discoveries and stone-cutting techniques refined, this type of setting gradually gave way to the claw-prong of the 19th century; a less labor intensive and thus less costly method, but also an easier way to showcase the sparkle of diamonds with excellent clarity and cut. In excellent antique condition with the band every so slightly out of round and a thin line at the center back of the band as evidence of an antique sizing, not noticeable when worn. No hallmarks but acid tests to sterling silver with the gold content around 14k. ⌘ The Eden Collective Ring Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939721&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1 ⌘ We are happy to offer layaway.
