Ask a question

Here’s a particularly appealing example of a late Georgian cabochon garnet ring.

The garnet is deep and glows brightly from all angles. Its only embellishment is a rounded ridged border of rose gold, typical for this style.

The simple tapered rose gold band bears two inscriptions, “All that remains” under the bezel, and “Cath. Bunbury died 8 July 1799” along the exterior of the band.

The size is 5 1/2 or K 1/2 – and the inscription means the ring cannot be resized.

With only minimal thinning of the band, it has remained in remarkable condition for its great age.
