Each and every memorial ring boasts a uniquely rich history, and this Georgian 18ct Gold & black Enamel memorial ring is certainly no exception. It is rare to encounter such a treasure as ornately luxurious as this!

Composed of an intensely buttery 18ct Gold inlaid with inky black Enamel, she features sophisticated flourishes throughout, including scrolled shoulders and two sweet Enamel hearts flanking the ornate woven hair work in the centre. Every crook and crevice is bursting with historical intrigue!

Complete with full hallmarks and 'Mrs Alice Goodhart, ob, 3 Oct 1829 at 56' inscribed on her inside band, this memorial ring holds great resonance for those fond of sentimentality. We could spend hours gazing at her and imagining the lives of her previous owners.
