During the Georgian Era, the imagination of jewelry creators filled their designs with hidden messages and veiled meanings. This ring is a meaningful survivor from this past era. The handmade enamel of a flaming heart may be a replacement done early in the period. it most likely was meant to express a hidden message or a veiled meaning that captures our imagination. The ring swivels and reveals a hidden back locket compartment with a crystal top set on a collet of bright gold. there is a little piece of fabric that is easily changed if the wearer prefers to add a keepsake or secret message.
The heart, a typical antique style, represents passion and eternity and the eternal flame shows a message of burning love. it may have been a message known only to the wearer.
Overall, the condition is commensurate with use and age. it is obvious that the ring has been well loved and shows miner areas of wear. It will fit a size 6 finger and weighs 3.4 grams. It measures 13.4mm at its widest part and sits 3.3mm high on the finger. There is a tiny repair to the back of one shoulder. Any marks that may have been visible were most likely worn off by regular wear. The gold has been acid tested and exhibits a 14K result. the swivel works perfectly. The red and yellow flame appears to be hand painted on a soft white background.
We wonder if this ring was designed with love for the owner. We wish we knew the designer and the recipient.
