Georgian mourning ring

£795.00

This Georgian ring would have once upon a time exhibited an image beneath the lens, often an urn or a scantily clad female figure. This particular ring has seen many decades of wear and as such it is most likely that some moisture has gotten beneath the glass erasing the image over the centuries. The ring is a memorial ring dated 1792 commemorating a famous namesake, Elizabeth Taylor. Crafter in 18ct this still remains a spectacular ring despite the disappearance of the image.
