A dazzling Georgian, English silver giardinetti (little garden) ring, set with dozens of rose-cut iron pyrite stones. Each of the stones is closed-back set in silver, just as rose-cut diamonds were. The design features a large central, six-petaled flower surrounded by stemmed leaves, tied with a bow at the bottom. Indeed, it sparkles like rose-cut diamonds!

The central mounting measures 1 1/8” top to bottom, and 1” at the widest point. A silver frame at the verso is fitted with a bifurcated double silver shank at the shoulders.

The ring is currently a size 7 1/2.

English, ca 1750.
