DECO 18 karat white gold ring
Asscher cut diamond ring with small sapphires and hand-engraved detailing, size
6, total weight 3.684 grams. The center natural diamond is an estimated weight
of 2.25 carats, I-1 and M-N color. Seven square cut synthetic blue sapphires are
mounted on the sides, as well as one natural sapphire that was a
later replacement. View

GEORGIAN 12 karat yellow gold
double serpent ring
with rose cut diamond center in a closed back setting, circa 1810-1830, size 9-1/2,
weight 4.664 grams. The diamond is set in a pinched silver collet rim and the scale
design wraps around the entire ring. The diamond is 3.3 to 3.6 mm,
difficult to measure in this setting. The color is a foil backed light
brown and it has a tiny broken edge visible only under magnification. View

GEORGIAN 10 karat gold and
foil backed rose cut diamonds by-pass ring with two rose cut diamonds, one 4.2 x
4.8 mm, one 4.1 x 4.9 mm, and six 2.1 to 2.4 mm diamonds; clarity S1 to I-1, color foil
backed with slight tint, total weight 2.241 grams. This ring is a size 9, and is
7/16" along the finger at the front and the band is 1/8" wide at the back. Circa 1800-1820, the the two larger diamonds are set in pinched collet rims. View

GEORGIAN antique 15k Stuart crystal
ring with gold wire cipher on the inside, size 9-1/2, stone itself 1/2"
by 1/2". The crystal is a faceted octagon with a tiny layer of brown under
the crystal and a dash of rose pink coloring. I think the
little cipher says "JC". The band tests 15k and the setting is
silver, so it may have been reset at some point in the past. This is late 1700s to early 1800s and really
lovely, a treasure for the collector of antique rings and a delight to wear
with care.

GEORGIAN or
VICTORIAN
high domed rock crystal cabochon ring with reverse carved and
painted robin bird on a branch with oak leaves. The setting also has has
three leaves in gold on each side of the center cabochon. The ring is just a
tad under a size 9 and runs 3/4" along the finger, the cabochon is a very
deep 1/3" with some scratching visible under magnification, some paint
missing inside as can be seen in the photos. The band, which may be
later-added, is hallmarked for 9ct gold, "375", maker "T&S", "9 375 R"
in a hexagon mark. The cabochon tests as rock crystal, the band
tests 10k, and the setting around the cabochon setting tests 14k. NOTE: That is my windows reflected in the
left side of the dome. This is reflective and seems to almost glow from inside the
dome. View

VICTORIAN 10-14k Tassie cameo portrait
of "Mad" King George II, (1738-1820), size 5 and 3/4" by 5/8" along the finger.
This material for making cameos was invented by James Tassie late 18th
century. The blue coloring at 3 o’clock on the ring is probably a manufacturing
error at the time it was made since the blue color is also under the top layer of
the white cameo, seen from the side. The total weight is about .26 ounces. Hallmarks on the band are crown 375 tiger face and cursive "D"
maker’s mark "B G", band tests 10k, front tests 14k, so I am thinking it is
possible that he band may not be original to the ring. There are no other signs
that it was ever anything else, though. View

late 1800s, size 6-1/4+ and weighs about .10 ounces. This is a natural fancy

setting is 14k white gold and it’s brand new. The spread table of this

diamond under one prong which doesn’t detract in any way as it cannot be
seen except under magnification. Wonderful
brilliant sparkle in this very nice diamond in excellent condition!

pearls and black and white enamel, size 7-3/4. You can just barely see
where it was once engraved as a memorial inside the band, but over the
years it has almost all rubbed away. The raised design goes all around
the band in a chain-like design meeting at the front with scrolls
that hold the central rectangular element. There is loss of some of the black
enameling visible only under magnification and wear on some of the
pearls. The diamond is approximately 0.15 carat, SI-2 clarity and I-J

In the 1856 book "Inquire
Within for Anything You Want to Know" by G.G. Evans, the

symbolism of wearing rings on the left hand is
described. A ring worn on the first finger signals a man desiring a
wife, or a woman not spoken for. A ring worn the second finger signals
an engaged person, and on the third finger a married person. A person
who plans never to marry wears a ring on the little finger.

By custom, wedding rings are worn on the
third finger of the left hand. In the 1856 book "Inquire
Within for Anything You Want to Know" by G.G. Evans, two explanations
are given for this custom. One goes back to Roman times, when a ring was
worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because it was believed that
a nerve ran from there to the heart. In Christian custom, the third
finger symbolizes the Trinity.

Late 1700s to
1840s

It is always fun when a ring is inscribed with a
date, taking the guess work out of circa dating. Although jewelry is
sometimes seen with a much later inscription, that is not the norm.
Rings from the early 1800s that are not dated may also have features to help identify them. Stones
in that period were often set in a close-backed mounting, and sometimes
foiled as well. Stones in the rings could also be set in a silver head
with a karat gold band and rose cut diamonds, all typical of this time
period. Hair and memorial rings were worn by both men and women.


Circa 1860 to
1890

Jewelry catalogues came into vogue along with the
mass production of jewelry. Looking at the illustrations and written
descriptions is a definitive way to date pieces. Hair jewelry was still
popular and could be fashioned as a home craft or ordered from
catalogues. Taille
d’epargne enamel work became very popular, as did mosaic and Mizpah rings.
Jewelry of this era can be a bit heavier and more somber that later
jewelry.



GARNET
9ct garnet cabochon and rose cut diamonds ring in a split shank
style. It tests as 9-10 carat yellow and white gold ring, size 8-1/4 and
7/16" by 1/3" across the top, weight .14 ounces. My jeweler polished the
gold setting on this ring so that it looks new, but it isn’t. An
interesting note is that the gem
stone "garnet" was named after the fruit "pomegranate" for the color and
luminescence of the seeds.

Persian
turquoise is a turquoise with no matrix at all. It was very popular in
the Victorian era and even into the early 20th Century. Often set in
karat yellow or rose gold, the designs were almost endless, as you can see from the
selection below. If you are looking for some Persian turquoise jewelry

VICTORIAN karat yellow gold and
Persian turquoise ring, the turquoise is set in silver which is mounted to
the gold, circa 1880, size 8, front 5/8".
Only very slight
signs of wear commensurate with age and use and the disparity in
turquoise colors is natural and perfectly normal.

GEORGIAN Persian turquoise
and diamond dome ring set in 15 karat yellow gold, size 6-1/2 and 5/8" high by
5/8" wide. The diamond is a Mine Cut Cushion about .05 in size and sparkles
beautifully. Lovely Victorian turquoise pieces can be seen in Michael Poynder’s
book "Victorian Jewellery" on page 138 and in

the book "Georgian Jewellery 1714-1830" by Dawes
and Collins on pages 45.
As can been seen in the pictures, the
turquoise stones have aged to slightly different colors. That is typical of
turquoise, which is a porous stone and absorbs moisture from the air readily
over the years. View
