We adore pieces with sentiment and history, and this antique 18ct Gold Enamel mourning ring epitomises both. The ring's exterior boasts gorgeous Enamel work, with Gold letters which read 'in memory of', each contained within a little Gold border.

The buttery and engraved 18ct Gold interior of the ring makes for an intriguing read, 'James Ward, who died on 31st Dec 1857, in the 75th year of his age'; we can't help but wonder who this man was and the life he left behind. There is so much fascination surrounding mourning jewellery, and you can understand why when you come across such 
an incredibly beautiful piece! 

Anyone who owns this Victorian ring can proudly boast that no one else will have a piece like it.

VERY GOOD. This antique 18ct Gold Enamel mourning ring is in very good condition overall. The black Enamel has remained fully intact, and each Gold letter is very much legible. The inside of the ring has a full set of hallmarks present, and the engraved words are clear. There are some signs of wear, as to be expected from such an old ring. It does appear that the ring has been resized, and as a result some of the letters have been lost, but it still reads well.  This ring is full of charm and is sure to make a fabulous addition to your collection!
