A variety of rosecut diamonds are held in deep flush settings within the face of this Georgian silver ring, which is further decorated with deep intaglio details. This ring is a conversion, the original silver ring head having been added to with a bright, sunny 18k gold shank. The shank bears some subtle intaglio details to the shoulders, with an otherwise undecorated, simple design. This elegant ring would make a fine addition to any collection.

  • Rosecut diamonds
  • Silver ring head (Georgian period)
  • 18k yellow gold shank (later addition to conversion)

Age/Origin: Conversion ring; ring head is estimated to be Georgian in origin; the gold shank was added later.

  • Dimensions: 11.8 x 10.8 ring face; 0.9 - 3.1 mm shank width; 0.3 - 0.9 mm shank thickness
  • Ring size: 7.5 US

Marks: -None-


Condition: The rosecut diamonds appear to have near-colorless color grades, and are sturdily-held in their flush settings. The ring does have some solder marks on the shoulders and ring head, a typical consequence of the conversion process. The silver and gold both have some patina tarnishing, and the relief details on the shoulders have been partially worn down. The shank has a well-formed circular shape, with no distortion, for a comfortable and consistent fit. Subtle irregularities and asymmetricality in the ring details are normal and expected for the hand-made pieces of the time period.
