A beautiful Georgian, English ring which has been closed-back set with an oval citrine paste stone in a crimped 15k gold setting. The faceted stone (7 x 8mm) is mounted horizontally over a rosy foil in a gold bezel, and crimped. As the citrine paste was set on a red hue foil it creates a stunning look; as the light dances across the facets, the color changes from golden to shades of orange and red, depending upon movement and light. It takes on the look of a Madeira citrine!

The ring has a beautiful rounded back, or ‘belly’ that is characteristic of many Georgian rings. The gold band has three engraved stepped designs at the shoulders with an undecorated band at the verso.

It is English, ca. 1800, and a size 8. Because of the direction of the mounted citrine, the ring stacks well on the hand!
