The chunky shaped shoulders lead to the large rectangular front setting which displays a central smooth polished black onyx surrounded by a halo of creamy white split pearls with a baroque look.

The reverse is engraved Will m Holditch, Ob 23 May 1817 aet:

There is no age for William, this has been left out, for reasons unknown only to those involved in his life, death and the rings creation.

A truly beautiful piece, c1810s, it is Unmarked, tests as 18ct gold, the onyx panel is a replacement, there was likely a hairwork panel previously.

Good used condition overall, some age commensurate surface wear, onyx is a replacement and sits very slightly skew.
