EXCELLENT-VERY GOOD: This Georgian 18ct Gold Garnet Black Enamel "In Memory" ring is in sublime condition, rarely marked by time. All of the hallmarks are crisp and the Enamel is perfect. There is one small chip to the Enamel at the centre, but this is honestly not noticeable when worn and does not detract from this overall rings beauty. We also have a reason to believe that the Garnet is original to the piece, with lovely colour and free from chips and scratches.
