This ring was made during the reign of George IV in the late 18th century. Georgian rings were often very dainty, and this style with a central coloured gemstone flanked by rose cut diamonds was the most popular design for everyday wear. Gemstones were generally foil-backed to enhance their appearance and set in beautiful domed closed back settings. Garnet, with its deep regal hue and bright flashes of rich colour, remained the most desirable gemstone for day-time wear throughout the mid- to late eighteenth century.
