    Pluto is a big news item right now, but the Georgians were also interested in the planets.

    A gold ring, circa 1820, the decorative scalloped shank terminating in an oval head with a variety of gemstones. The stones represent the qualities of the different planets, reflecting the keen interest in astrology and planetary influences at the time. Certain gems were perceived to have positive astrological effects.

    In order clockwise:

    sapphire - Saturn
    rock crystal - Venus
    agate - Mars
    quartz cat's eye - spiritualism and intuition
    spinel - Saturn
    brown zircon - Jupiter
    amethyst - Saturn
    green zircon - Mercury
    garnet - North Node
    chrysoberyl - spiritualism and intuition
    pearl - moon, ruby - sun
    center garnet - north node

      An absolute stunner! Thanks for showing this and explaining the significance, perhaps I'll find one in the wild one day? - I wish!
