This covetable Georgian era ring is fashioned in buttery yellow gold and silver with elegant split shoulders and a trio of rose cut diamonds in rub-over settings. 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.
