18k Foil Backed Garnet Memorial Ring Dated 1854

A stunning foil backed garnet graces the center of this mid-Victorian memorial ring. Inscribed “G.A.S. Died 24 April 1854” the mounting is both hand pierced and engraved in a beautiful scrolling floral motif. Though it has been sized it still retains most of its original hallmarks and is in excellent condition for a one hundred and fifty five year old ring.

While the mark indicating gold purity has been removed the ring tests as 18k gold. It weighs 2.3 grams and is currently a US size 51/2. It can be sized though care should be taken to preserve the remaining hallmarks. A great find whether you love memorial jewelry or just appreciate the subtle, warm glow of a beautiful garnet in a superb 1850’s mounting.

A Message From Victoria:

The dollar is strong in Europe and I've found so many wonderful, affordable, and truly lovely pieces of Antique and Estate Jewelry that I've decided to put them all up as quickly as possible. These are fantastic pieces and I've priced them as low as I possibly can.
