Victorian 18ct Pearl & Diamond Memorial Ring – SOLD
This beautiful Pearl & Diamond hair memorial ring crafted in 18ct gold from the Victorian age. A classic style of its Era. Many people from this time used jewellery to hold treasures of their loves ones and would have hair woven unto rings with initials and dates of death engraved on them. Some, like this unique ring, had a secret compartment where a tiny lock of hair would be kept from a lost loved one. The original hair can still be seen in this ring when opened up to reveal the compartment. The date ‘July 26 1893’ is engraved on the inside, most likely to signify the death of the loved one.
This is a beautiful unique piece of historic jewellery.
