This is the rarest and oldest piece of jewellery we have ever come through our doors, and what a spectacular piece she is! A genuine antique Pearl mourning ring handcrafted in 1813 during the reign of King George the 3rd, this ring is a rare collector's piece and sure to make a wonderful addition to your jewellery box!
Warm 18ct Yellow Gold encapsulates the Pearls in a foliate design wrapping around your finger like she's been plucked out of a folklore fairytale. In its centre sits a pretty twinkling Diamond shinning as brightly today as when she was first set 205 years ago!
Boasting a range of deep original hallmarks including one we've never come across before; the silhouette of King George the 3rd! She's a testament to Georgian craftsmanship and a rare piece of history! On the inside of the feature is an open space where a glass panel would have kept a lock of hair beneath its surface once upon a time.
