Antique Georgian ring. 18k gold, silver, diamonds. Made in Europe, but exact origin not known. Dates to early 19th century, circa 1810. Unisex - can be worn by a man or a woman. Measurements: Weight is 4.7 grams. Approximately US size 6.5. Description : Bezel of ring is formed by a pair of skulls, naturalistically formed with fine detail down to the modelled teeth. The entire surface of both heads is pave set with rosecut diamonds, set in silver. The skulls face away from one another. Death was a very real and integral part of life at that time and there are many more references to Man's mortality than we have today. The significance of the skulls remains as does the relevance of the subject. Simple gold shank with bright cut engraving. The ring can be worn by a man or a woman. Marks and Metal: Later hallmark 18ct. Condition: Minor wear commensurate with age and use. Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
