This is a beauty. I always try to get Giardinetti ( Italian for little garden) rings when I can. I love the rubies in this one and it is quire early, circa 1780-1800. It is a size 5 and 3/4, but could be sized by.a jeweler used to working with antique jewelry. The ring weighs 3 grams, and is crafted from unmarked , but tested, 18 carat gold. The decorated top of the ring (the flower basket) measures a little over 3/4 of an inch North to South, and about the same East to West. Like most of the early Giardinetti rings, this one is curved to fit the finger. This one is special.
