Late 18th Century Spinel & Diamond Giardinetti Ring


The design, known as giardinetto/giardinetti (Italian for "little garden(s)"), epitomizes the delicate and balanced Rococo style popular in the mid-18th century, reminiscent of Fragonard's iconic painting "The Swing." These rings, adorned with diamonds and petite colored gemstones, vary in fluidity and symmetry, aiming to harmonize with the floral-patterned fabrics fashionable during the late 1700s.
