Ornate 18K Georgian repousse rose cut diamond ring which likely belonged to someone of nobility. This lavish Austrian or German ring pulls out all the stops with its intricately carved band and gorgeous rose cut diamond mounted in silver "petals" which are in turn set in a carved gold bezel. to maximize the optical qualities of the stone. The carved shoulders of the ring widen on each side to encase another, smaller rose cut diamond mounted again in silver petals. This is the fanciest and most elaborate ring you are likely to come across anywhere. The ring comes with its original box marked "Margraf and Co" "Berlin". Margraf and Co was the name of an art and jewelry dealer in Berlin in the early part of the twentieth century, the owners of which likely had the ring box custom made for the ring at this time, realizing that a ring of such importance necessitated a custom box. The ring might have been worn by a man as well as a woman. It is US size 7 3/4.
