18th CenturyFrench Diamond IrisGiardinetti Ring

$5,500

This covetable Georgian ring is known as a giardinetto/giardinetti (Italian for "little garden(s)"). These floral-themed jewels reflect the mid 18th century taste for delicate, elegantly composed Rococo styles, a departure from the from the heavier and more ostentatious styles of earlier years. Giardinetti rings - sometimes fluid and asymmetrical, sometimes even and balanced - were designed to compliment the floral fabrics that were in vogue in the mid to late 1700s. French hallmarks.
