GEORGIAN TURQUOISE PANSY RING

Georgian Turquoise Pansy Ring c.1800

SKU: RG050
£995.00Price

An elegant Georgian turquoise 'Pansy' ring.  

 

This pretty ring has a tiny rosecut diamond set within 5 oval cabochon turquoise stones representing a pansy flower. The scrollwork design shoulders are beautifully set with smaller turquoise stones and are closed to the reverse typical of the era.

 

The ring has a slender reeded shank which can be sized down (it is a large size and was probably made to be worn over a glove).  

 

In the Georgian era the 'pansy' was used to refer to the French pensee "think of me" and this ring would probably have been a lover's gift.  The ring would have originally had a locket back used to keep a lock of a loved ones hair hidden close to the skin.

 

The ring is in beautiful condition with only slight discolouring to the shoulder stones in keeping with its age.  

 

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