A very fine and meticulously painted Georgian ring with a portrait miniature of a man with piercing blue eyes in a red waistcoat, his wig worn "en queue", set under glass. The rose gold bezel is set with 33 seed pearls. The mount is closed-set, with a cut down collet. It is rare to find a ring with such a small portrait painted so perfectly, still in pristine condition. This ring is English, dating to the later part of the 18th century, and probably belonged to a woman of high birth who would have received it as a gift from a suitor or loved one.

The ring is unmarked but tests between 16k and 18k gold. The bezel measures 18mm x 14mm. The miniature alone measures 15mm x 12mm. The hoop is distinctly oval shaped, measuring 20mm wide by 15mm deep, or approximately size 5 ¾. Gross weight: 2.9 grams. Condition: excellent.
