Georgian Sapphire & Diamond Cluster Ring
DATE: Georgian, c.1830
This stunning 19th Century cluster ring is set with a vibrant central blue Sapphire (likely of Burmese origin) surrounded by a 2.24 carat cluster of old mine cut diamonds. The head is formed in a flower shape, and the elegant split shoulders display wonderful chased foliate and orange-blossom details. Modelled in 18k gold, with silver settings, this ring was made at the very end of the Georgian period - exceptionally high quality and with a particularly good collection of stones.
