If even my first jewelry I've posted here on my blue enameled CW was cut rose jewelry set. Because I am quite fond of that wonderful combination of diamond, silver and deep blue.
You will therefore understand that I am very happy with my new acquisition; this beautiful Georgian blue enameled gold diamond ring.
This is a stunning and rare piece from ca 1830 France (Georgian period in England, reign of Louis Phillipe in France). Opulent, large, total of 75 diamond encrusted and of 14/18K k gold ring with vibrant deep royal blue enamel, it is fit for royalty. Even the back side is a work of art. The ring is predominantly yellow gold with silver mounts to set off the diamonds.
In the center, a bird with rubin eye flower and leaves composed of rose cut diamonds is mounted on the blue enamel background. Around the edge, rose cut diamonds set in silver make a thick sparkling border.
The band is wide with a groove along its length. There is a decoration on either side acting as extra support for the large, heavy top. The back of the ring is solid gold, hand chased with florid designs. There is one hallmark I cannot not decipher but the ring was tested for at least 14K.
The top of the ring measures 1.1" (27 mm) by 0.4" (10 mm). It weighs 7 grams. The condition is - well, perfect- amazing for jewelry of this age.
