Georgian Garnet Pearl Memorial Ring Gold '1828'

They were at a great country house for a ball held by a family friend. The evening of English country dances and Gavottes had ended and they were all thanking the host before leaving for the night. She stepped outside for fresh air, as the night had started to turn into morning. She was in a crimson petticoat over white satin, with frills of white lace at the neck, and an ivory shawl. She slipped off her long gloves to reveal a garnet and pearl ring set in gold, that shined, just right, in the first rays of morning’s light. The handsome gentleman who danced with her an hour ago came up to her and slipped her a letter with her name on the front. Before anyone else could see he kissed her cheek and went off into the dawn.

This antique Georgian garnet and pearl cluster gold ring was handcrafted in London in 1828. It’s an elegant piece made in 18 karat gold with engraved split shoulders that support a face of 10 pearls and one perfectly red garnet. The garnet is cabochon cut and rectangular, measuring 8.2 x 4 mm, set on a closed back mount. Each of the 10 pearls are round cabochon cut and measuring between 3 mm and 2.2 mm in diameter. Inside the band is an inscription, “EN August 23 1828”. This ring is a size 6 and it weighs 3.3 grams. The face measures 10.7 x 14 x 3.7 mm off the finger and band width of 3.5 mm at the back. This ring is fully hallmarked and bears the crown for England, the leopard head for London, the gold purity mark, “18” and a maker’s mark that reads, “IS”.

Georgian jewelry is not an easy thing to find, especially something in such great condition as this ring! It’s a collector’s item for sure, but it also deserves to be worn.
