I feel so fortunate to be able to offer such a lovely Georgian ring for sale on Ruby Lane, Of course I'd like to keep it, but I need to sell a few things so I can go back and buy more, LOL! I am calling this a Solitaire, even though it has two side stones, because it features a good sized rose cut diamond. Of course we can not weigh and measure antique stones the way we weigh and measure modern stones, but I do have a tool which measures the size of a stone, and this one appears the same size as a modern 1 carat size. it is really hard to determine, though, because the setting is sort of a octagonal one. This ring is unique, and it is still in excellent condition for it's almost 200 years, as it is circa 1820. The stone is close backed and foiled, as they were at that time, and the lovely wavey band is unmarked but tested 18 carat gold. The rose cut diamond is set in silver as they always were in 1820. The ring measures a size 6, but I must say that it fits my pointer finger more like a size 7. This is most likely due to the basket back which takes up some room on the sizer. The ring could be resized by someone used to working with antique jewelry. Again, it fits my pointer finger without force, and I normally wear a 6 and 3/4 or 7 on that finger. These basket backed Georgian rings often measure on way, and fit another. This one is a true gem, pardon the pun!
