Antique Georgian Diamond Ring……..

Superb Georgian closed back ring circa 1790 -1800 with a central rose cut diamond measuring 5mm in diameter.
This fabulous ethereal old diamond sits approximately 2mm higher than the silver cut-down setting and lies on a circular panel of brightly coloured Royal Blue Guilloche Enamel which is enticingly set off with a border of 12 x 2mm rose cut diamonds, also held in silver cut down settings.

Even with a closed back, this ring is a real sparkler, made to really glitter in the evening candlelight of a Georgian home, it is an absolute delight!
The closed back and shank is high carat gold, testing around 14ct.
This wonderful blue enamel – a smooth, translucent midnight shade was perfected in 1775 by the renowned London Enameller, Jusen.
It is thought that the profusion of items in this colour began as gifts given by Royalty to other Royals. In the Diary of Fanny Burney there is an entry that the princess Royal,the daughter of George III was given “a blue enamel ring with a large diamond in the middle and set round with smaller ones” by her brother Frederick, theDuke of York, for her 22nd birthday.

The fashion caught on in France, where rings of midnight blue and diamonds were called “bagues defirmament” translating to “rings of the sky”.
Although the original box is long gone, it is rather fitting that this ring comes in a fabulous substantial vintage leather ring box from a Jewellers in the Royal Borough of Windsor, England.
Measurements: The front of the ring measures 12mm (1/2”) in diameter the height (back of the ring to the top of the centre diamond is 5mm (just under ¼”)
