Georgian Lozenge Plaque Ring 'Je Vous Guide' With Striking Old Cut Pink Paste Stones

Beautiful substantial Georgian ring with central sepia and macerated hair miniature depicting a lady in flowing empire line dress and helmet like head-dress.

With her right hand the lady holds a wreath over a heart, on a festooned pedestal. And with her left she holds a tassled spear. She is Athena Goddess Of Wisdom, - At the top of the image it says 'je vous guide' - I guide you, and she is ready to Guide the deceased with her Wisdom.

The miniature is covered by a curved slab of rock crystal with a beveled edge, and around the edge are 24 foiled pink paste or rock crystal old cut stones, so striking and unusual.
