This is a lovely Georgian memorial band, which is in excellent condition. It is crafted of 18 carat gold , unmarked but tested, and it is a size 7. It is a little over 1/4 of an inch wide, and it could only be resized with beads or a ring sizer. It is interesting because it has a narrow band of white enamel, on each side of the wider black enamel. Often white enamel denoted a virgin, as an unmarried woman or a child, so I'm not sure what the significance is of both black and white. The ring has hallmarks with the Lion, for England, the date mark (looks like 1813 to me), and the sovereign head, but there doesn't seem to be a city assay mark. Written in gold lettering, on the black enamel, are the words, " Eliz :Todd.ob 24.Jan:1820.AET:57. This is a very nice example of a Georgian mourning band. They are usually in good shape, because mourners often just kept them, and wore them very little.
