Little emeralds, rubies, and diamonds come together across the face of this beautiful conversion ring. The top face is a genuine Georgian piece, likely from a decorative button, with a silver construction, crafted into a weaving, leaf-like structure, embedded with the various gemstones in full bezel settings. Added later, bright 15K yellow gold is expertly crafted into a size 7.5-8 band, with a subtle repeat detailing of small perpendicular incisions along its circumference. In great condition, this beautiful conversion ring will be treasured for years to come.

A wonderful Georgian Giardinetti (ornamental floral) element was converted to a ring sometime in the past. The top is silver and gold set with diamonds and precious rubies and emeralds. All of the stones are foiled with closed backs as was the jewelers' custom in the period. This little floral bouquet from the past will bring a bit of historical delight to all who see it.
