Georgian Rose Cut Diamond Cruciform Ring

$5,000

This lovely late 18th century cruciform ring features five rose cut diamonds in rub over settings. The standard treatment for gems in Georgian era jewelry (and the treatment that follows for this ring) was to mount them in a complimentary metal - typically silver for colorless gems and gold for most colored stones - with closed settings and foiled backs. The gemstones in this ring are arranged in a cruciform shape with split shoulders and lovely detailing along the outer edges. A special and rare ring in very fine antique condition. Please use caution when wearing this ring, take care to remove it when doing any moderate to heavy work with your hands, or when showering or washing dishes—the settings are closed and moisture that seeps behind them may cause the foil backing beneath the stones to oxidize.
