This is such a sentimental and lovely piece. It is an 18 ct gold ring with blue enamel on which sets a gold forget-me-not, encrusted with natural pearls. The shank is gold and blue enamel, and on each side the blue enamel forms a cross. At first I thought this was a memorial ring as many are made in this fashion, but then I read the engraving on the back of the ring: "CC to MMD, Dec. 25, 1872," so I believe this to be a love token given to the beloved for Christmas. It is a woman's size 5 and could not be sized other than using a ring guard. It is in excellent condition, and the decorated top measures 3/8 of an inch North to South, and 1/2 of an inch East to West. The shank is a nice thick one and so beautifully decorated with enamel.
