He went on to say it was a typical design from Georgian times, putting it somew. between 1790 and 1800.

‘This is actually really rather rare. It’s grey because it’s actually quite a heavy spotted diamond but it doesn’t matter. It’s a rare stone,’ John said. 

One of the biggest shocks came when he said that the stone was studded with rubies and a diamond, and that the ring was made in India.
