SOLD! 

One of the prettiest and most unique pieces of mourning jewellery we have ever come across, this rare 9ct Gold Victorian mourning ring is a fantastic collector's piece. 

Exquisite black enamel has been skillfully applied to decorate the face and shoulders and the use of both blonde and brown hair woven together in an alternating pattern is undeniably beautiful.

The two-tone hair reflects the contrast of the black enamel and yellow Gold and brings the whole piece together, whilst the soft curved shapes of the shoulders feel gorgeous on the finger.

An extremely rare and collectable ring.
