GeorgianEmerald and DiamondPansy Ring

This wonderful later Georgian ring is made in 14k gold. The mounting features a lovely engraved scroll motif with dynamic curls and spots of openwork. The central floral cluster is a pansy rendered in old mine cut diamonds and emeralds. “Pansy" comes from the French pense meaning "to think". Lovers of a hidden meaning, the five-petaled flower was frequently used in Victorian love token jewelry to express the sentiment "think of me".
