Antique French Victorian Georgian 18ct Gold & Silver Red Paste Ring:
Interesting very old Georgian period French 18ct Rose GoldRing, in 'jarretiere' or garter style with 7 graduated colourfulPink-Red faceted Paste stones in closed and foiled Silvercut-down settings. Internal diameter approx. 17.5 mm so roughly equal to modern size N 1/2 UK, 6 1/2 USA, 54 France.
Hallmarked with the left facing Ram's Head used in Paris 1819 - 1838 and old maker's marks. Approx. weight 1 gram.
This Ringwas apparently much-loved and worn away as a consequence. The shank is very thin and narrow but still supports it for an occasional outing. The stones are still reflective from within but the surface of the paste is abraded and the facet edges are rounded.
Please check photos for condition as sold as seen -worn condition but no accidental damageand proof of age in hallmark. There is still some enjoyment left here to please an individual buyer - I am just concerned that the condition is understood so it will not disappoint if bought to give as a gift.
