Victorian 18ct pearl Memorial Ring.

£465.00

Mourning or memorial jewellery does not always have to incorporate the colour black into the design. This particular ring featuring pearls and a faceted design with engraving inside commemorating a Keighley Burton. The hallmarks are wonderfully preserved but the pearls are no doubt replacements. Being set so proud the original pearls would have taken a good bit of abrasive wear and tear.
