Antique Spinel, Gold and Silver Ring, circa 1750

About

Antique period natural Spinel, diamond and enamel ring. In very good condition, for its age, this impressive 18th century ring tests to be more than 18K gold (probably 20k), it centers an oval bright red natural Spinel (measuring 8.3 by 6.7 mm), in a closed back setting with an approximate weight of 1.0 ct., accenting this center stone (which under 10x magnification shows some slight scratches and abrasion on the table facet) are approximately 1 ct. of old Holland cut rose rut diamonds set in silver and also backed - which was the typical way to set stones at this time. On the back is ornate patterned polychromatic enamel which continues in the gold ornate scroll design along the shank. This ring is a size 5.6 and can be sized. This delicate piece probably made in Europe, second quarter of the 1700's. Similar rings can be seen in the book, Rings - Symbols of Wealth, Power and Affection by Diana Scarisbrick. Please see chapter three, The Seventeenth Century: Baroque sobriety and splendour. This ring, which bears no marks is possibly French because of the use of colorful. It is difficult to know categorically.
