Date 1874 Mourning Ring

£675.00
#71370

In lovely quality 15ct Gold, (a standard used solely in Britain between 1854-1932) this once beloved mourning ring has been cared for down the generations to remain in lovely condition today. A tangible symbol designed to ease the heart in bereavement, the mourning ring held an important place in Georgian and Victorian society. This pretty example shows a central rosette of wild Pearls (symbolising tears) around a tiny Diamond spark, the shoulders and bezel highlighted in fine Black enamel work. Quite touching in the time it must have taken to create...

A ring size 'M' or '6' we could possible adjust the size a wee bit for fit. There are some barely perceptible losses to the enamel but only really observable with a loupe.
