Ask a question

Gothic design was highly fashionable in 1835 when this 18-carat mourning ring was made.

It remains in wonderful condition, the enamel glossy and the gold crisp and unworn. The inside is both inscribed and hallmarked.

And it has an unusual construction: it was made in two parts – the enamel band separate to the carved and pierced upper ring. Both were then finely soldered together.

Late Victorian Gothic-inspired mourning jewellery rarely reaches the quality of late Georgian and early Victorian examples such as this one.
