This is a very interesting cut diamond ring. I am listing it as mourning because of the engraving on the back, but of course this is not your usual mourning ring. I suspect it was someone's wedding band, that was later engraved as a memorial to the owner. The ring is composed of 18 carat gold, unmarked, but tested. There are seven foiled and closed backed rose cut diamonds. Of course we can not weigh antique diamonds the same way as we would weigh modern ones, but I can give you a general idea of size in comparison with a modern diamond. The largest diamond is the size of a .33 diamond; the others are about the size of a .20 diamond, The ring is a size 7 and 1/2, but it could be resized by someone who is used to working with antique jewelry. The ring weighs 1.9 grams. The inside of the ring is engraved: "M B (C?) (0b) it 25 June 1878 AET 72. This ring has a lot of sparkle, and it is very wearable.
