Description:

This incredibly rare Georgian Gold Pearl Enamel flip mourning ring is one of the most spectacular collector's items we have. Crafted from 10ct Gold throughout, the ring head can be easily flipped to reveal pristine enamel work writing "IN MEMORY". 

Not only are we obsessed with the kinetic movement of this ring, but we also love the crisp inscription on the inside of the ring band: "Walter Mason Esq, died 4th March 1814 aged 57". This sentimental piece was clearly made to cherish his life, and the rich detail shows that this person was fervently loved within his family

Condition:

EXCELLENT: This rare Georgian Gold Pearl Enamel flip mourning ring is in exceptional condition! Considering its 200 year age, the ring is perfect. The ring smoothly "flips", with all of the gemstones and the enamel work crisp and pristine, with no scratches or abrasions. The written inscription is easy to decipher and the ring band feels secure throughout. Originally there would have been some hair within the glass panel, yet this was likely removed in its past life, making the ring more suitable for modern wear. Overall, an irreplaceable treasure that should certainly be within your Georgian jewellery collection!
