Georgian Emerald & Diamond Crowned Heart Ring

The Georgian period encompasses the reigns of the four King Georges from 1714 to 1830. During this time, the aristocracy made it a point to flaunt their wealth by making sure they were absolutely dripping with jewels at all times. Although engagement rings were uncommon - they weren't frequently given until the Victorian era - the exception to this rule was the crowned heart ring. These rare pieces would be given to one's betrothed as a token of love and devotion. This spectacular crowned heart ring features a superior quality emerald framed by old mine cut diamonds. These gemstones are set in closed settings and backed in foil. We recommend removing the ring when showering, swimming or washing hands to prevent moisture from seeping in which might cause the foil to darken or oxidize.
