Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1820

A superb early 19th Century half-hoop band, set with seven rubies and the shoulders finished with the most wonderful chased goldwork. These don't come up often (all original, with stones in closed back settings) and this is a great example, it's wear and imperfections just add to the charm. It's modelled in gold fill: a thick layer of gold encases a pinchbeck core.
