Huge, Rococo style, gold, silver and old cut diamond ring, dating from the1750s/ 70s. This ring is mixed precious metals, it is unmarked but the shank tests as 15ct and the head of the ring is silver. It is set with lots of tiny diamonds, the largest is approx. 3mm in diameter and the smallest approx. 1.25/ 1.5mm. The diamonds are uncut and in their natural diamond shape, which is common for rings of this period. Because they are uncut they are not as sparkley as cut diamonds. The shank of the ring is hand engraved and so is the back of the ring head. The ring is decorated with Rococo style shells on either side of the shank. The front of the ring is very wide, approx. 2.4cm in diameter and the back of the ring shank is 1.5mm. It is a very small finger size and because of the shape of the ring, it is not easy take a size on a jeweller's ring stick but its about a UK J/ K or US size 4 3/4 - 5 1/4. Approx. weight is 6 grams.

Condition: Its a very old ring and they are rarely perfect and this does need a little repair work, although it can be worn as it is. There are 3 stones missing, one very tiny one at the top edge of the ring and two which are right of the centre stone. There is old glue in the settings of the two missing centre stones, so it looks like there are stones there and its only with a jewellers loupe, that you can see they are missing. There is also a few chips in a couple of the diamonds. The shank is slightly pointed at the back and is a little thin at the point but it seems strong enough but may need soldering in the future.
