A beautiful antique Georgian era mourning ring

The gorgeous ring has a central panel with a glazed hairwork compartment, enclosing a fine braid of light brown hair.

Surrounding the hair is a fine bezel frame of yellow gold and then a halo of rich black enamel, the two colours contrasting beautifully, the outer rim is made from engraved and embossed gold with a typical Georgian style to it.

One of the things I love the most about this ring is the decorative scrolling shoulders and the gadrooned gold band which provides the look of a double band.

It is unmarked with a closed back setting, the band tests at approx 12ct gold.

A charming antique mourning ring.

English make, early 19th century, Georgian era.

Very Good used condition overall, some age commensurate surface wear and overall patina.
