Georgian Turquoise Pansy Ring c.1810
In the Georgian era the Pansy design was used to refer to the French pensee "think of me" and this ring would have been a lover's gift.
A tiny rosecut diamond is set within 5 cabochon turquoise stones to represent a Pansy Flower. The shoulders are beautifully crafted with a pierced openwork design and the ring is in beautiful condition onto a plain shank.
The ring has its original locket back which would have been to keep a lock of a loved ones hair hidden close to the skin.
This ring, in common with the vast majority of Georgian pieces is a dress ring and will not take 'heavy' wear being over 230 years old. Rings of this age and in this condition are increasingly hard to find.
