Mrs. Washington's fondness for garnets is evident from the number of necklaces, earrings, pins, hair ornaments and rings she assembled for herself and her daughter, Patsy (1757-1773), in the 1750s and 1760s.
A rose-cut diamond flower ring of Mrs. Washington in our museum collection is the inspiration for this sterling silver, garnet and crystal version. The original ring dating 1750-1775 with nine diamonds was considered an impressive display of taste and wealth.
A small garnet in the middle surrounded by a cluster of eight crystals give this size a modern day look. This ring comes in sizes 5-8.
Handmade by a Virginia artisan. Made in the USA.
