This is a lovely memorial ring in memory of two people who lived a long life. I suspect the couple's children had the ring made. It is crafted of 18 carat gold, unmarked but tested. It has a lovely split shank, and black enamel on gold, with a nice garnet set in the middle. The glare of the sun made the garnet look discolored in places, but it is undamaged. The script on the front of the ring spells out the words "In Memory Of." The back of the ring is inscribed with the death details of two people, whom I suspect, were husband and wife. The inscription reads "Elen Holmes ob 9th December, 1839, AE 84, and John Holmes, ob 8th Feb 8, 1840 AE 87. The ring is a size 7 and 1/4 to 7 and 1/2, and could be sized by wearing a sizer inside the ring or by someone used to working with antique jewelry. There are hallmarks inside the ring; the sovereign's head and the crown denoting the assay office of Sheffield, is visible. The ring weighs 3.5 grams, and is in excellent condition.
