Early Victorian Sterling Garnet Rose Cut Diamond Ring
A spectacular and very unusual garnet ring from the Early Victorian (ca1850) era! This wonderful ring is made of sterling silver and holds a large garnet cabochon stone at the center. The prong set garnet display a rich, deep red color and is surrounded by an exceptional filigree mounting encrusted with sparkling Rose Cut diamonds. Swirled cutout shapes and delicate beadwork cover the shoulders and sides of the ring, with rows of diamonds lining the exterior of the design. The overall effect is very majestic and makes quite a special statement! The band is smooth and tapers in slightly as it nears the back. An outstanding Early Victorian era piece, this ring displays wonderful artistry and would make a unique addition to any collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.5 but could be resized if desired. The center of the ring rests approximately 3/8" above the finger when worn.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting, garnet cabochon, or to any of the Rose Cut diamonds, all of which are intact.
