This fabulous collectable Mourning ring is steeped in English history, set in 18ct yellow gold and set with a beautifully detailed shank.

On the inside it is engraved ‘Margaret McBaen Died 17 July 1818

The front window has a crystal section with plaited hair underneath.

Mourning jewellery mirrored the lives and times of the people who wore it.

It was a souvenir to remember a loved one, a reminder to the living of the inevitability of death, a status symbol, especially during the Victorian Era. 

Mourning Jewellery has been worn from the middle ages up until the Victorian era.

The jewellery consists of formulaic rings made of gold and black enamel and decorated with standard memento mori such as skulls and coffins.

A black enamel border chases around the outer gallery.

Set with a lovely shank that is detailed all the way round with beautiful all round workmanship.

The crystal window is a little scuffed but this is nothing for its age, being 199 years old.
