This listing is for a stunning and very delicate and beautiful Georgian gold split pearl and small rose cut diamond daisy ring. It looks like it may be a mourning ring as the recessed back may well have been a compartment for a lock of hair.
The four split pearls are very effectively and stylishly accented by 5 rose cut diamonds, 4 on the outside and 1 in the middle and the stones are set in a milgrain collet setting. Delicately engraved and pierced shoulders and a slightly channelled shank. The condition of the ring is superb and it's good to go. It does look like it has been sized at some point as there is a mark through the shank of the ring. Ring size - M/16.6mm dia.Total weight - 2.4g. Each split pearl measures approx 4.4mm in dia and the rosecut diamonds are very difficult to measure but i very much doubt they are any more than. They just add that touch of brilliance and sparkle and contrast with the pearls beautifully. Because of the date of this ring the split pearls will be natural rather than cultured.
You often see them described as seed pearls but i would say these are a bit big to be described as such. The ring is unmarked which isn't unusual of rings from this period but it has been tested to a standard of no less than 15ct but it could be 18ct. This is typically a late Georgian design and would date to the first quarter of the 19th century. The ring comes in a quality faux leather ring box. I did by professional jewellers diploma 20 years ago and followed it up with a 2:1 degree in Fine Art Valuation and then studied for my FGA and have worked in some excellent jewellers.
If it is at all possible i will hand deliver the ring myself but this will only really be possible if you are no more than 200 miles away. Otherwise it will be sent. Especially with Christmas round the corner. Please study all the images carefully as they form an important part of the description.
