An unusually different Georgian Ring. This ring dates from the early 1800's. It is crafted from 14K yellow gold with amethysts, pearls, diamonds and black enamel. The center of the ring features a black enamel background. The enamel is in good condition with a couple of scratches to the surface, being that it is black in color it is not noticeable unless looped. In the center of the enamel is a fluer de lis gold appliqué which is adorned with two old mine cut diamonds and one rose cut diamond. Surrounding the enamel is a rococo design which is then followed by 18 split pearls. The pearls are very uniform in size each measuring roughly 3mm each. They vary in color slightly with one being reinforced with epoxy, hence the golden color of the pearl. Each pearl is secured into place with delicate little prongs in a circular setting. Just outside of the pearls are tiny little old cut amethysts between each pearl on the outer boarder. There is one amethyst missing on the upper left corner as shown in the photographs. However as the ring is well over 200 years old, one would consider this acceptable wear. The back of the ring is closed and smooth. The inside of the band is in-scripted which is so faded one can not make out the initials. The sides of the shank are enameled in black with a heart motif. The enamel work on the shank is in fabulous condition. The over all condition is very good with the exception of the one amethyst and it's setting missing. The ring has tested as 14K Gold with real diamonds pearls and amethysts.
