This is a nice , black enamel mourning ring with hair work under the bezel. It is in pristine condition, and it is engraved Eliz. th Macfie, died 7th April, 1839. It is a size 7. It is getting so very hard to get these rings now, The hallmarks are all present declaring that this ring is 18 carat gold, minted in London, and the sovereign head, date letter, and makers mark are all there. On my previous two trips to London I had asked, and no one had them. My box of memorial rings was getting low. On my last trip in December, I found some from a good dealer who is well known and she said she had worked hard to collect them, and when they were gone, who knew if there would be more? So, I bought all 6 reasonably prized ones she had. This is a nice one and it would be a great way to start or complete a collection.
