This lovely Georgian emerald and diamond ring has two matched emeralds flanking a larger rose cut diamond at center and two smaller diamonds at each end and cut out curlicues and scrolls that form the border of this lovely ring. Looking closely at the photos and the way the ring is constructed, one can see the Georgian's intuitive knowledge of color theory and how warm tones of emeralds work best with gold and the cool tones of the diamonds contrast better with silver. It is for this reason the emeralds are set in gold and the diamonds in silver and further set into a gold band. and the two tones marry beautifully. The ring is a size 8 and can be sized.
