ANTIQUE NUMBER SA964191: The Antique 1789 Georgian Diamond, Pearl And Enamel Mourning Ring

The Antique 1789 Georgian Diamond, Pearl And Enamel Mourning Ring

£3,699    $4,820    €4,401
This outstanding ring features an oval face set with three dazzling old-cut diamonds on a blue guilloche enamel background. A border of white enamel with ornate gold detailing is surrounded by 22 dreamy pearls.
 
 
The reverse of this 18th-century ring is inscribed with the words 'Martha Vanderwall Williams ob. March 19 1789 at. 18'. The shank of this ring appears to have been attached at a later date, though the style of the join suggests this work was done a very long time ago. This ring may have had a different shank in the past that required replacing, or it may have been a brooch which was converted to a ring in the early 19th century.
 
 
This ring is in very good condition for its age with just light marks commensurate with its over 230-year history.
 
 
This mourning ring is a testament to the sentimental nature of the Georgian period, as rings such as this were worn as a symbol of remembrance for a lost loved one.
