Our rare Georgian planetary ring is made up of seven stones cut and polished en cabochon; 2 lapiz lazuli (blue), 2 goldstone (glass with copper flecks), 2 malachite (green) and one red agate. The deep colors of the stone make this ring mesmerizing. The stones are set in an 18K backing. The stones represent the qualities of the different planets, reflecting the keen interest in astrology and planetary influences at the time. According to George Frederick Kunz, renowned American mineralogist, gems associated with certain planets were believed to have astrological power and had positive influences over the wearer. Each band is just over 1/4" high. A truly unique and rare ring that reflects the fascination and zest for astrological influences of the 19th century.
