This wonderful early Georgian ring is known as a giardinetto/giardinetti (Italian for "little garden(s)"). These floral-themed rings reflect the mid 18th century taste for delicate, elegantly composed Rococo styles, a departure from the from the heavier and more ostentatious styles of earlier years. Giardinetti rings - sometimes fluid and asymmetrical, sometimes even and balanced - typically feature diamonds and small colored gemstones. These rare jewels were designed to compliment the floral fabrics that were in vogue in the mid to late 1700s. This elegant example of the giardinetti style features a spray of flowers (with a particularly lovely central bloom) rendered in silver and gold and set with rose cut diamonds
