Georgian Garnet and Chrysoberyl Three Stone Ring

About Details
This vibrant later Georgian era ring is fashioned in buttery yellow gold with an undulating Rococo shank and a gem trio set in crimped collets. The combination of the deep red garnet with spring green chrysoberyl might seem unusual in the modern day, but in the 19th century these lush colors paired with gold were a visual expression of wealth and the ultimate in opulence. The standard treatment for gemstones in the Georgian period was to mount them in closed settings and back them in foil. This distinctive style of stone setting is a hallmark of Georgian jewelry, but it requires the wearer to take a little extra care - it's best to remove this ring (or any ring with closed settings) when showering or washing dishes, because the settings are closed they can trap liquid which may cause the foil backing beneath the stones to oxidize and darken. Please keep in mind that this ring is very old and may not be suitable for every day wear. This ring is a size 6 and due to the decorative shank, it cannot be resized.
