Georgian Pearl & Emerald Pansy Ring c.1810

SKU: RG067

A pretty Georgian 'pansy' design ring.

 

In the Georgian era the pansy design was used to refer to the French pensee "think of me" and this ring would probably have been a lover's gift.  A small emerald is set within 5 pearls to represent a pansy flower. The shoulders are beautifully crafted with ornate floral design shoulders each set with a gold pansy flower which flow onto a reeded shank and sits low to the hand. There is a space behind the head where there was originally a locket compartment (sadly long gone).  

 

This ring, in common with the vast majority of Georgian pieces is a dress ring and would not take 'heavy' wear being over 200 years old. Rings of this age and in this great condition are increasingly hard to find.
