What a beauty this ring is. We have a nice sized emerald with a beautiful, natural pearl surround consisting of 8 pearls. Then there are three smaller pearls on each side of the shank. I was told that the ring had reinforcers (small) to the shank which are very early or even original to the peace, as that's something they did in Georgian times. There is a small, old chip in the emerald which shows up at a dark spot in the photo. This can't even be seen with the naked eye, but keep in mind, my photos use a macro lens so they are enlarged. This is a beautiful ring, and typical of the style of circa 1810 when this ring was new. The ring features the original split shank, and it is a size 6. The emerald and pearl part, not counting the ones on the shoulder, measure 3/8 of an inch North to South, and 5/8 of an inch East to West. This one is a beauty which I'd love to keep, as I must say it looks very nice on my finger.
