This is one of the loveliest, most poignant Georgian memorials I’ve ever seen, commemorating the death of a child! An angel and a child rise through the sky, the angel pointing toward heaven. The artistry and balance of the composition is amazing; the angel has dark wings and dress and protectively surrounds the sweet child, dressed all in white. They rise heavenward in a blue sky with dark clouds – all elements are beautifully balanced...

Such a charming and unusual antique ring, featuring a gem-set fly which swivels on a 12k gold band, probably Continental. The fly’s head and legs are made of gold; the thorax is a garnet, and the abdomen is a beautiful cabochon moonstone. The wings, which are set in silver, have two diamond chips on each side. Great condition. The hallmarks are unfamiliar to me: “500” must refer to the 12k content; also marked “373”. Ring size 6.
