GEORGIAN ENAMEL LOVERS EYE RING 18CT YELLOW GOLD SHANK DATED 1986
This mysterious ring features a wonderful Lovers eye hand painted in Enamel on a Porcelain base with lovely stylized clouds added to the bottom of the image.
Eye miniatures or Lovers’ eyes were popular during the 18th and 19th centuries and were exchanged as a token of love to their spouse, loved one or child. Only the eye was painted so that their identity remained anonymous except to the person they loved.
The painting is safely secured behind a glass window and features an engraved border which is from the Georgian era and fitted with a newer lovers’ eye and 18ct Yellow Gold shank which is made in the Georgian manner and hallmarked Sheffield 1986.
This is truly one of a kind and is a fantastic marriage of old and new.
