Forget-me-not

Forget-me-not love token ring

Such a pretty Georgian love token ring, circa 1820. The high carat gold tapering shank supports an oval head set with a plaque of vibrant blue guilloche enamel. The enamel plaque is surmounted by entwined forget-me-not flowers executed in rose-cut diamonds, set silver, within a surround of old-cut diamonds. Forget-me-nots in the language of flowers symbolised true love. The ring is size P [US 7 and 1/2] and the head of the ring measures 1 and 3/4 of an inch by 1 and 2/3 of an inch. Extremely comfortable on the finger due to its curved shape, substantial and immaculate.
