Georgian Five Stone Diamond Ring
Dating from the early 19th century, this antique ring is composed of old mine-cut diamonds, silver and 18K gold. The ring is mounted across the top with five graduating old mine-cut diamonds, set within clawed, closed-back partial silver collets, and joining an 18K gold band. A rare survival of the late Georgian jeweler’s art, this antique handmade ring presents a line of chunky old diamonds that creates a fiery, sparkling band of light across the finger.

Jewelry from the Georgian period tends to have the artistic delicacy that results from the labor-intensive techniques of hammering precious metal sheet and raising forms by hand, rather than relying on casting, and before the introduction of die stamping.
