I am on a buying trip at this posting, and I could find no mid range memorial rings at all this time. I could find a few wonderful , unique, expensive ones, but none that your average collector could buy until I went to the last dealer whom I thought might have some. I found a few from her, including the prized bands, that have suddenly become very popular and nearly impossible to find. This dealer and I both said when these are gone, we were not sure there would be any more. It makes me glad I have my own personal collection that I have build up for years. Anyway, this is a nice band. It is a size 8 to 8 and 1/4, It's 18's carat, unmarked but tested, but all the other hall marks are there. The band measures 3/8 of an inch wide, and weighs 6,5 grams. It is constructed of gold with a black enamel band, and two narrow white enamel bands. The enamel is in good shape, amazingly, and the words in gold lettering on the black band read as follows: Josh Clark ESQ Died 25 Sept 1807 Aged 69. This can not be sized, but I have had a customer who, when these were too large, put Dr. Scholl's moleskin on the inside to take up space, and it can easily be removed without damage. If you want this sort of memorial ring, now is the time to buy it, because I'm not at all sure I can get any more, even for more money. I've been buying these for years, but in the last year, none of my regular dealers but one have had any.
