Care must be taken with foil backed rings, as water can damage the foil backed setting. This is not a washing up ring! In that period diamonds were so hard to come by jewellers. Would fashion metal to fit the diamonds and not vice versa. While diamond resources were quite limited (and remained so until the late 19th century).
It was during these years that experimental settings and open facets. Were designed to allow more light reflection in colorful gemstones and striking diamonds. The main central diamond is table cut with a polished foil pocket behind to create an amazing depth!
This is not a Polki ring which have slivers of diamond with foil placed directly. On the back but an English Georgian piece over 200 years old.It has been re-sized but not soldered so it can be adjusted to fit you. Inner diameter is 19.1mm. 63 small rose cut diamonds and 1 large table cut diamond. Please feel free to ask any questions at all. I ask you don't punish me for their error.
Please note : In packaging I use materials recycled from industrial companies. They are brand new & unused & I have used them creatively.(Occasionally the envelopes have another company name). This way my packaging is not only free to you but benificial environmentally.
