Hair Ring, GeorgianHair Ring, GeorgianHair Ring, GeorgianHair Ring, GeorgianHair Ring, Georgian

This is a very nice, gold (though I don't know the weight) mourning ring, with hair under a bezel. It's hard to see because of the glass, but the hair is dark and nicely woven. The chasing around the glass is very typical of this period. The curved shank is also lovely, and this ring is a little unusual because of the engraving all the way around the inside of the shank, and the back of the bezel. The center back has the name of the deceased, "Mary Ruddle." All around the shank are the words, "Born 9Dept, 25th, 1773, Died April 16th, 1829. The ring is a size 8 and 3/4. It could be sized, but that would destroy some of the engraving. It is in excellent condition. The portion of the ring with the chasing and bezel measures 1/2 inch East to West, and 3/8 of an inch North to South.
