A highly unusual Georgian cluster ring made in memory of King George III. The face of the ring features a warm old mine cut diamond in a high silver bezel within a halo of faceted black paste stones. The ring has the wide, airy shoulders with interlacing gold wire popular in the early 19th century. The underside of the head is engraved, "Geoe [George] 3rd born 4th June 1738 died 29 Jan 1820".
