18th Century Georgian Garnet and Paste Heart Ring Betrothal
This sweet 18th century garnet heart ring was likely a betrothal ring, the pear shaped garnet representing a heart. The shank is particularly wonderful. It was hand wrought to resemble a plant's stem, and the settings for the clear stones are the flower. It is about a size 5, maybe a bit bigger, and easily sizable by a competent jeweler due to the plain underside of the shank. Clearly It was a greatly loved ring, as it shows wear on the stones. The garnet has a scratch and there is some wear to the facets of the pastes. But considering that the ring was crafted in the mid 18th century and is over 200 years old, I feel that a little forgiveness and a price that reflects its pre-loved condition is in order. We can only imagine the young couple, who originally owned this ring, contemplating their future together.
Gender: Female, Age Group: Adult, Color: garnet, Size: small size 5
