Georgian 15kt Silver-Top Rose Cut Diamond 7-Stone Ring
A gorgeous rose cut diamond band from the Georgian era (ca1750)! Made of silver-topped 15kt gold, this stunning European ring is of English origin. It holds a row of 7 sparkling old rose cut diamonds, which line the face of the ring and weigh approximately 1.00+ ct tw combined. The stones are graduated and foil-backed, with the largest stones resting at the center, and the smaller stones at the ends. Each diamond is held within a bezel and claw prong setting, which hugs the outside of the stone, accentuating each individual shape. A smooth rosy gold band completes the design, which is stamped with two small marks inside the shank. When worn, the ring has a marvelous appearance that is rich in texture and history. It would make a unique wedding band or a special addition to any antique jewelry lover's collection!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 6.25, but could be re-sized up or down if desired. The width of the band measures 6mm across at the center, and 3mm wide at the back.
Condition: The overall condition of the ring is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the silver-topped gold setting. All of the stones are intact and secure within their setting. There is a natural patina on the surface of the setting that gives a darkened appearance to the silver, which is normal for Georgian era jewelry and adds depth and character to the beautiful antique design.
