This lovely ring has held up absolutely wonderfully over the past 200+ years. Navette in shape there are 18 white foil backed tested quartz crystals and one champagne foiled backed crystal in the center. The foils are perfect and the crystals retain all of their original sparkle... All of the stones are perfect with no nicks or chips. They are securely collet set with rubbed over silver all around the stones. This has been professionally tested and they are in fact quartz, not paste. In true Georgian style, the bench jeweler lovingly decorated the back of the ring with a very pretty design.
The face of the ring measures 3/4" x 3/8." There is deep wonderful patina both around all of the stones which of course look very much like diamonds and on the back. It has never been polished. The Silver is either 800-900, European standard for silver and the band is tested 15K Rose Gold.
This is in excellent antique condition with no apologies to be made.
Circa 1800, likely French in Origin. Simply a beautiful ring that is comfortable and can be worn everyday. Questions are always welcome and encouraged.
The ring is a US size 7 3/4 and has never been sized before. It can easily be sized up or down by 2 sizes with ease. It weighs 2.3 grams.
Please Note: Box is for display only. Also noteworthy... Please take great care not to expose your closed backed jewels to water. It can seep behind the stones and damage the foils. Please remove this ring prior to washing your hands.
