Commemorating 'JOS SAUNDERS DIED 2 MAR 1784 AET 25', this antique George III era band is a poignant piece of history in your hand, marking the passing of a young man. This piece would have been custom made, the letters carved from 18ct Gold and enamel applied in the Champleve style. The band is unhallmarked as at the time the standard didn't have a mark.
A ring size 'U' or '10' it was likely for a male relative. and is in wonderful condition.
