This rare Georgian blonde hair Gold mourning ring is an exquisite collector's item. Featuring intricately braided blonde hair, and the inscription "Rachel Dousett ob. 8th August 1813 at 41".
A note to collectors, the size of the ring suggests that this was commissioned for a gentleman, so perhaps this could have been a touching memorial piece to his wife or sister! Set upon a wide 9ct Rose Gold shank, this piece is certainly an irreplaceable treasure within your antique jewellery collection!

VERY GOOD: This rare Georgian blonde hair Gold mourning ring is in fantastic condition throughout.
