An antique ring with an ancient feel– this Georgian citrine ring embodies an old world charm that can not be replicated today! The golden citrine is an organic kind of oval cut and is foiled, meaning there is a sheet of metal encasing the back of the stone. This was a common practice at the time, as they rightly believed it added brilliance to the stone. Over the centuries, water and other tiny particles get in between the foil and the stone and can distort the foil to a certain extent. This is why the stone appears somewhat clouded and dirty up close. This can not be undone, and so we embrace the flaws of the foil and accept it as another kind of antique beauty! The bulk of this ring is made of 18k yellow gold, heavily patinated, with silver accents which encase a rose cut diamond on either side. Perhaps the most special part of this ring is the beautiful handmade metal work. The citrine is set into a detailed kind of cup and set upon a gorgeous, artfully carved shank. It is stunning at every angle! It was made in the late Georgian or early Victorian era, around 1830-50. The ring is currently a size 4 1/2 and may be easily resized upon request.
