Such 'Bague au Firmament rings', are also known as "Ring of the Heavens".

It's incredible sentiment and meaning, where the diamonds represent the stars in the sky, and the blue represents the night sky. Queen Marie Antoinette of France, was known to have worn her Bague au Firmament ring everyday, and it quickly became very fashionable in the late 18th to early 19th century.

In the picture gallery you can see a painting of Marie Antoinette with her children, c.1785, painted by Adolf Ulrik Wertmüller - In the painting, she is seen wearing her cherished 'Bague au Firmament' ring.

The ring is wonderfully beautiful, with hand engraved detailing all around the ring border, and detailed shoulders on the sides of the ring. It is a US 7.75 and sizable.

The ring features a fleur de lis style design set with foiled rose cut diamonds approx. 0.30ctw by spread. The foils are clean and bright.

It is hallmarked '585' with the Dutch cartouche on the inside of the band for 14k gold. It is an all original antique ring and not a conversion ring.

The ring face measures 17.2mm x 22.4mm height, not including the ring shoulders. The Bristol blue measures 10.3mm x 15.2mm height. It weighs 5.65 grams.

It is in stunning and great condition, with no chips or cracks to the bristol blue glass.
