Georgian Rosecut diamond Bague au Firmament ring


During the Georgian Era, a new trend emerged out of France; romantic pieces that reminded one of the midnight sky with millions of twinkling bright stars! These rings featured lovely blue enamel or blue glass with dazzling diamonds set within. These rings are known as Bagues au Firmament or 'Rings of the Heavens'.

Inspired by La Bague au Firmament, this ring is a special one.
Famously, Marie Antoinette had a plaque ring with dark blue enamel symbolising the night skies with many diamonds depicting the stars and the diamond surround. She wore hers nearly every day and they became highly fashionable in the late 18th all through to the early 19th century.
This ring does not have diamonds spread on top of the blue glass, but instead the diamonds form a beautiful flower. The flower may carry various meanings, as symbolism was highly used in the Georgian and Victorian era.

This original Georgian ring has mysterious dark blue glass surrounded by a halo of rosecut diamonds and a flower on top. The ring has a lovely curve to it, and is set on a 14k yellow gold band. These elongated rings were typically made from about 1800 to 1850. This particular ring with its floral detail is a little unusual, and speaks to the sentimentality of the time. This flower from heaven is a unique piece and a collector's dream come true!
