Here is a fantastic example of why mourning rings are so popular and sought after.
This late Victorian ring dates from 1891, and is made in 18ct yellow gold with black enamel. The enamel on the front shows “In memory of” and there are 5 old European cut diamonds giving it great sparkle.
Inside the band, it is engraved, “Edward Abott Wright born Nov 7 1808 died April 24 1891”
The ring has a compartment on the underside, where the woven hair is placed.
Overall, this is a great mourning ring, that looks exceptional on the finger, and is a wonderful piece for anyone who loves mourning jewellery or antique jewellery in general.
