In the Victorian era it was common to make a piece of jewellery to remember family members who had passed on. Sometimes these would be lockets, with a portrait of the person, or a lock of their hair. In other cases, it would be a brooch or a ring. Often the pieces would be made of jet, or some other black material.
This is an early Victorian mourning ring, made in gold, with a single diamond, and black enamelling. The inscription on the inside reads “Mifs Eliz. Clayton who died 15th June 1848″
The engraving is pristine, and spaced around the hallmarks.
