Early 20th Century 18ct, Diamond & Pearl Memorial Ring

£625.00

A very touching and personal tribute to a lost loved one. Memorial rings were extremely popular throughout the Georgian / Victorian and Edwardian era.
They came in all different varieties and some even containing a lock of hair of a dearly departed.
A lot of the time you would find dates and initials or names engraved in the ring to represent and pay tribute to a loved family member who passed on.

This ring from early 20th century is of no exception and has clearly been inspired by this traditional style.
Crafted in 18ct gold and beautifully showcasing a delicate flower with a rose-cut diamond and pearls as the petals. The enamel surrounds the flower highlighting the incredible craftsmanship.

On the outside of the shank you will find the initials E.H, presumably that of the lost loved one.
The enamel expertly crafted to say “In memory of”.

This is truly a lovely piece of fine sentimental jewellery.
