A Superb Gift of Emperor Franz Joseph in Gold & Diamonds

Joseph, superb and very attractive A Superb Gift of Emperor Franz Joseph in Gold & Diamonds; (total weight approximately 2.5 carats, of average quality), centering Emperors initials in the center, also set with numerous small diamonds, worn, but in excellent condition, circa 1870-80, very attractive, and extremely rare. Traditionally Austrian (and most other European Sovereigns) would often award most loyal and close associates, diplomats and advisers with personal gifts when traditional awards (orders or medals) appeared less appropriate, or inconvenient. Gifts in gold and diamonds, large and valuable as this ring however were unusual and uncommon, reserved for a small number of distinguished individuals close to the Emperor. Note: during this period and until "discovery" of white gold in early Twentieth Century as a rule diamonds were set in silver.
