A gorgeous Georgian ring with a large amethyst paste stone set vertically. The emerald-cut stone has been foiled, closed-back bezel-set with 16 crimps in gilt metal, and joined to a silver-gilt shank. The shank is reeded at the top and bottom and bifurcated at the shoulders, where it is joined to the central mounting. The amethyst paste measures 12mm wide and 14mm in length. The ring has a beautifully rounded back, or ‘belly’ that is characteristic of many Georgian rings.

It is currently a size 7 on a grooved mandrel.

Ca. 1820

A truly lovely object.
