A RARE GEORGIAN 18KYELLOW GOLD,SILVER, DIAMONDS & CITRINE 3~BAND LADIESRING!
THIS RING IS NOT JUST VERY RARE BEING ABOUT 200 YEARS OLD BUT THE CONDITION IS EXCELLENT. THERE'S ACTUALLY 3 INDIVIDUAL BANDS THAT ORIGINALLY WOULD BE WORN SEPARATELY BUT MANY DECADES AGO SOMEONE PUT THE 3 TOGETHER BY SOLDERING THE VERY BACK OF THE BAND. LUCKILY THEY DID NOT DESTROY THE ORIGINAL HALLMARKS WHICH HELP DATE THIS TO THE EARLY PART OF THE 1800'S. THE ONLY ALTERATION IS THE ADDITION OF THE "18K" STAMP WHICH WERE SURELY ADDED TO RESELL THIS RING LONG BEFORE IT CAME TO ME ALMOST 30 YEARS AGO. THIS AMAZING BIT OF HISTORY CONTAINS OVER 2 CARATS IN GEM WEIGHT WITH A TOTAL OF 9 ALL 100% NATURAL CITRINE GEMS THAT ARE EACH INDIVIDUALLY BEZEL SET AND 6 ORIGINAL ANTIQUE ROSE CUT DIAMONDS. THE YELLOW GOLD IS NOT JUST HALLMARKED BUT HAS ALSO BEEN TESTED BY MY JEWELERAND CONFIRMED BY THE APPRAISER AS ALL 18KT (750 PURITY) SOLID YELLOW GOLD. TYPICAL OF ALL REAL GEORGIAN ERA ANTIQUE JEWELRY, THE ROSE CUT DIAMONDS ARE MOUNTED IN PRECIOUS BEZELS MADE OF SILVER WITH A HIGH CONTENT OF STERLING QUALITY. THERE ARE 3 YELLOW CITRINE (A TYPE OF NATURAL QUARTZ) GEMSTONES MEASURING WELL OVER 4mm BY 3mm (LENGTH & WIDTH) OF AN OVAL FACETED SHAPE AND OUTSTANDING CLARITY. THE TOP AND BOTTOM BANDS CONTAIN 6 (3 IN EACH) MATCHING SIZE CITRINE GEMS OF VERY RARE & COSTLY ORANGE COLOR, AGAIN WITH A FINE TRANSLUCENT CLARITY. THE 6 ROSE CUT (A TYPE OF FACETING USED 2 CENTURIES AGO) NATURAL DIAMOND ACCENTS MEASURE 1.4mm TO 1.7mm IN DIAMETER WITH AN ESTIMATED WEIGHT OF 6 POINTS ~ NOTED ON THE APPRAISAL HOW NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE IT IS TO A PRECISE WEIGHT AS ROSE CUTS VARY IN DEPTH AND SHAPE. THE GIA (GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OF AMERICA) GRADUATE GEMOLOGIST APPRAISER DOES NOT ADD A VALUE FOR AGE OR ANTIQUITY SO THE APPRAISAL FOR INSURANCE PURPOSES IS BASED ON THE COSTS OF CREATINGTHIS RING TODAY WITH AN ESTIMATED RETAIL REPLACEMENT VALUE OF $4,200.00. IT'S SUCH AN AMAZING EXAMPLE OF GEORGIAN ERA (PRE~VICTORIAN) JEWELRY AND IN SUCH OUTSTANDING CONDITION WITH ALL GEMS ORIGINAL AND NO REPAIRS TO THE BEZELS. THE ONLY WEAR IS TYPICAL AND AGE CONSISTENT WITH SOME LIGHT ABRASSIONS TO SOME OF THE ORIGINAL GEMSTONES. CONSIDERING THE AGE, IT'S NOT JUST REMARKABLE TO HAVE SURVIVED BUT IN SUCH WEARABLE A CONDITION. I HAVE MYSELF TREASURED OWNING THIS MAGNIFICENT CLASSICAL DESIGN ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MASTERPIECE FOR NEARLY 30 YEARS HAVING ORIGINALLY OBTAINED IT FROM AN ESTATE OF A FILM DIRECTOR'S WIFE WHO LIVED INBEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA. THIS PRECIOUS TREASURE IS AN ORIGINAL ANTIQUE ~ NOT A COPY OR REPRODUCTION LIKE SO MANY SELLERS INTENTIONALLY MISREPRESENT OR CLAIM NOT TO KNOW THE AGE. PLEASE ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS IF A SELLER IS CLAIMING A RING IS A REAL ANTIQUE ORIGINAL AS EVEN SELLERS ARE OFTEN FOOLED BY A GOOD REPRODUCTION. I, ON THE OTHER HAND, HAVE DECADES OF EXPERIENCE HANDLING ONLY ESTATE ~ VINTAGE & ANTIQUE JEWELRY ALONG WITH A MULTITUDE OF ANTIQUES AND COLLECTIBLES. I KNOW HOW TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE AND ONLY KEPT THE VERY BEST EXAMPLES FOR MY PERSONAL ENJOYMENT AND COLLECTIONS.THIS ISA SELDOM FOUND OPPORTUNITY TO OWN ATRUE GEORGIAN ERATREASURE AT A PRICE YOU DECIDE.
