Antique Georgian garnet with black enamel ring, 18k. Ornate and opulent, this petite ring features a translucent ruby-red garnet cabochon framed by a heavily cut gold floral pattern. Surrounding the gold, smooth black enamel sets off the design with great contrast. On either side, engraved scrolls and open-work gold frames the teardrop-shaped enameling. A sweet little flower abuts the ribbed shank.

The condition is very fine and you will prize this little beauty as an heirloom.

Inside, the inscription reads: Sarah Booth, obt 2 July 1839 Aet 71. Sarah Booth died in 1839 at the formidable age of 71. The hallmarks opposite show the leopard's head, 18k, London, and makers' marks. The date of "S" indicates 1853, which may indicate a replaced shank.

Size 6, or possibly 5.75, the ring weighs 2.2g. The rounded rectangular front of the ring measures 1/2" east to west by 3/8" north to south; add 3/8" for each side design. The shank is about 1/16" at back.
