This beautiful, antique Georgian gold ring has been closed-set with a central rock crystal over a green foil, with two silver foiled, black-spot diamond paste stones on each shoulder; each individual stone set in silver.

The central crystal, which measures approximately 5 x 6mm, is in excellent condition and sparkles with green flashes as the ring moves. This effect is difficult to capture in a photograph but quite striking in person.

The gold mounting at the verso of the central stone is decorated with a rayed (or basket) back. It is in very good condition and is quite wearable. There are slight signs of wear on the pastes, one small nibble which is only seen with a loupe, all commensurate with its age.

The ring is English, Georgian period, from the late 1700ís, and is approximately a size 9-1/2.
