A stunning Georgian giardinetti (little garden) ring in high karat gold set with asymmetric floral/leaf motifs.

In the mid to late 1700’s the naturalistic taste for light and elegant jewelry—airy, openwork settings using gemstones in the form of flowers and foliation--was very fashionable. The flowers on this exceptional ring are six rose-cut diamonds of varying size, which have been set open-back in gold petal crowns with a single rose-cut diamond bud below, along with four emeralds leaves. The simple D-shaped gold shank joins at the shoulders and continues to a plain back.

The ring is a size 8 ½, and because the shank has an undecorated back, sizing is possible.

Highly unusual, and lovely.
