A beautiful 1800s style ring modelled in 18ct gold. The centre is set with a vibrant foil backed garnet with a large, flat, table, and minimal faceting around the crown of the stone. The playful gemstone reflects deep reds and purples as it is turned in the light, the foil acting as a mirror beneath, enhancing and radiating the colours of the gemstone.
Surrounding the garnet is a halo of creamy white half pearls, traditionally used to symbolise purity and tears. The pearls are held in a traditional Georgian style collet, accented by the decorative shoulders of the stone that curve around your finger like your own secret garden.
The head of the ring is hollow, common in Georgian and Victorian jewels, but this is in overall good condition, despite a very small hole to one side near the shank. Other than this the ring is offered in excellent condition.

We offer a ring re-sizing service by our antique specialist for a small fee, starting at £40.
Most of our rings can be resized, but if they can’t we will stipulate this in the description.
As a rule we will only alter a ring by three UK sizes. If you would like to size a ring more than three UK sizes (either up or down) please contact us on a case by case basis and we will try and accommodate you as best as possible.
We do not offer refunds on altered pieces, so please make sure you love your new piece before you purchase.
Sizing takes approximately 1-2 weeks.
