Antique Iberian diamond cluster ring from late Georgian area made of 22k yellow gold
Antique Iberian diamond cluster ring from late Georgian area. This iberian diamonds ring is dating from the end of the 18th century, set with 9 rose-cut foiled diamonds in a flowers and leaves motif.
The diamonds are gray in color, their sparkle is accentuated by the foil placed below in the bezel-set. Care should be given not to submerge the ring in water as it can tarnish and damage the foil. The estimated weight of the diamonds is 0.60 carats. The shoulders are decorated with two small parallel lines.
The ring is hallmarked owl, attesting to at least 18 karat gold, but it appears to be 22 karat when acid tested. We assume it is an Iberian, Spanish or Portuguese work.
The Georgian jewellery period spans from 1714 to 1837. It was named after four successive kings of England, George I, George II, George III and George IV.
Condition: given the age of the ring, some wear is to be expected. The gold is very matt, the ring is very slightly flattened and three diamonds show chipping. The one in the center has an open frost but the stone is not broken. If you would like more pictures please do not hesitate to contact us.
