18th Century "Three Doves" Diamond & Turquoise Ring

$6,500.00


Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1780

A breathtaking antique ring dating from the late 18th Century, circa 1780. The head is set with table cut diamonds, arranged around two birds (possibly collared doves) and a chick - the latter sitting on top of a turquoise cabochon. The craftsmanship is exceptional, and the subject very sweet - I've never seen one like it! Modelled in 15 karat gold with silver settings and a rococo-revival band.
