Georgian Miniature Gold, Emerald & Diamond Ring

Sold

This really is a tiny ring. It will not fit on a little finger! I can only think that it was worn by a child. It is so pretty with four small rose cut diamonds and a central rectangular cut emerald. It could have ben a Christening present as it is in the shape of a cross. In the Catholic Church, green has a special meaning since it has always been considered the most natural and elementary colour in liturgy, hence the use of the emerald. It was made circa 1780.
