Georgian Pink and Orange Topaz Pear Shaped Ring - image 1 of 5

I love this ring so much. Topaz is my birthstone, and the pink variety is my favorite as I wear more clothes that are pink and maroon, than are orange. It really took some gazing with a loupe to finally surmise that the center stone is pink and the surrounding stones are amber colored. Somehow when looking at the pink, more of the stones look pink than that. This is a wonderful, very early, ca 1760 ring.The stones are foiled and the setting is closed backed. The center, pink, pear shaped stone is the size of a modern 1.5 carat stone, and the amber topaz surrounding the center stone are different sizes and shapes, with the larger size being at the top and bottom of the pink stone. That one appears to be the size of a modern 1/2 carat stone. There are 7 topaz surrounding the larger center stone, I am not even going to attempt to guess the carat size of all the stones if this were a modern ring, That is too hard. Suffice it to say that this is a one of a kind , early ring, with a lot of gem power, and I believe it to be a rare bargain. I would not even consider selling it if I did not already have a lovely pink topaz ring in my personal collection. This ring is worthy of any museum. It measures a size 7 and 1/2 when placed on the sizer shank side up, but more like a 7 when placed on the sizer with the stone size up. It could be resized by someone used to working with antique jewelry. The ring is in excellent condition, and it weighs 4.7 grams.
