7200 Georgian 18 Karat Gold Enameled Ring set with Eight Rose Cut Diamonds and Eight Seed Pearls:

18th Century Original Ring with Diamonds and Pearls
1780 Ring Enameled and set with Diamonds
7200

The ring is handmade and hand enameled in the Georgian time period of 1780. The gold work is 18 karat yellow gold and enameling was applied and melted into the gold which is an art form rare to find in this early period.
The rings band is set with eight seed pearls which are natural pearls. The dome of the rings front is set with eight Rose Cut natural Diamonds which are hand cut.
The theme of the ring is a Fleur-de-lis formed in silver and set with the eight diamonds. Eight must have had a special meaning to this family of Boston.
The fleur-de-lis or fleur-de-lys (plural: fleurs-de-lis) is a stylized lily (in French, fleur means flower, and lis means lily)
Fleur De Lis is a stylized emblem or device much used in ornamentation and, particularly, in heraldry, long associated with the French crown. One legend identifies it as the lily given at his baptism to Clovis, king of the Franks (466–511), by the Virgin Mary. The lily was said to have sprung from the tears shed by Eve as she left Eden. From antiquity it has been the symbol of purity.
The ring has some repair to the enameling on the dome next to the edges but the stones are well set and the ring otherwise is in great condition. The ring is a 7 ½ and cannot be resized because of the way the band is made. The current insured value as of August 2012 is $2200.00
