Georgian Engagement Rings

GEORGIAN STYLE

Antique Georgian engagement rings are often set in silver over gold with rose-cut diamonds. The rose cut is circular like its namesake flower, with a flat top and a domed crown with either 12 or 24 facets, and is an uncommon cut in modern jewelry. Rose-cut diamonds are more frequently associated with antique styles such as Victorian or Georgian. The gems in Georgian engagement rings are backed with reflective foil in a closed-back setting, which gives them some sparkle.

Most dealers will suggest that you are careful with rings from this period as their age makes them particularly fragile. Consider an antique Georgian engagement ring to be a truly special occasion piece, and not for everyday wear.

Georgian jewelry is named for the monarchies of the four King Georges, who in succession ruled England starting in 1714 (plus King William’s reign, which lasted until 1837). A slew of beautiful pieces were produced during the period, and today antique Georgian rings, necklaces and other accessories are coveted by fine jewelry collectors.

There are certain features that distinguish jewelry from this era, including the fact that pieces from the 18th and early 19th centuries were handmade (so don’t let the absence of a maker’s mark lead you to believe otherwise). Antique Georgian jewelry also has a certain “look.” It’s a bit gray because stones were often set in silver, and because stonecutting techniques were not as advanced as they are today, the gems do not possess the level of sparkle to which we have become accustomed.

Pearls, along with colored gemstones like garnets, rubies and sapphires, were widely used in Georgian jewelry. These were often cut in the shape of a cabochon or teardrop. It was fashionable to combine garnets or rubies with seed pearls. In Georgian diamond rings, popular cuts for diamonds included rose, old mine and table. Around the 1780s, paste jewelry, or hand-cut glass on foil, was used to imitate diamonds.
