*This Ring Can Be Resized.

The 1770s were a time of social and cultural upheaval. Marie Antoinette became the young Dauphine of France. The American colonies revolted against Great Britain. Mozart was composing his most famous sonatas. The Industrial Revolution was in full swing, driving people to move cities. And advancements in technique rocked the jewelry industry across Europe.

During the Georgian Era, stones were never cut for a specific piece of jewelry. Everything was created around the materials available. Diamonds were the preferred stone of choice, most commonly faceted into a rose cut. Jewelers preferred to foil-back diamonds and set them in sterling silver collet settings. The combination of foil and white metal intensified the diamond’s natural luster, giving the desired effect during candlelit balls. 

This splendid ring, circa 1770, is classically Georgian in every way. Five rose cut diamonds are collet set in sterling silver with reflective foil backs. The slightly pear shaped center diamond was likely chosen for its unique illusion of a heart making this ring even more special. The 18k gold shank is simple in its design, as to not to detract from the 1.1 carats of sparkling antique cut diamonds. A welcome artifact from The Age of Elegance.
