Antique Edwardian Diamond Enamel Mourning Ring in 18ct Yellow Gold Size UK O 1/2 US 7 1/2

£399.00

This is a rare, antique diamond and enamel mourning ring set in 18ct yellow gold.  Mourning rings are jewellery made to commemorate someone who as passed away and is used as a form of remembrance.  The use of mourning rings date back to the 14th century.  Their popularity reached its peak during the Victorian era (1837-1901) but in America this surged in the 1930's and 40's. This ring has full halmarks and is dated 1903

Size: UK/AU/NZ size O 1/2 or US/CA size 7 1/2.

As this ring is rare and antique, you may find that sometimes they don't come in the ring size that you are looking for. We suggest try wearing them on other fingers where they may fit. Alternatively we can offer a resizing service for a reasonable extra charge (please contact us directly). Most local jewellers also offer this service. Most rings can usually be resized 1-2 sizes up or down, depending on the design / condition


Stones: 3 round white diamonds in a gypsy / starburst setting

Weight: 6.7 grams

Era / Hallmark: Hallmarked in Birmingham, 18ct gold, 1903

Condition: The diamonds are in very good condition and well set.  The gold base and shank is chunky and heavy with only mild surface scratches with all hallmarks visible under a loupe.  The black enamelling has faded, a testament to its age.  It is not advisable to repair the enamelling and we think that this ring overall looks great in showing its age.

What I love about this ring: The personal nature of this piece, its age and the beautiful diamonds.

As with most vintage jewellery, this is  rare and unique. This will come to you presented in our branded box - ready to gift to yourself or to someone special.
