Of all types of antique jewelry, mourning jewelry is my favorite. I find it very sentimental, and a lovely way to remember one that has passed on. This is a lovely example of a mourning ring, of the early 1800's. We have a lovely, split and chased shank, unmarked but tested 18 carat gold, nice hair work, set jet stones, nice natural pearls, and best of all a lovely inscription. The ring is a size 7 and 3/4 and it could be sized, but only with a jeweler used to working with antiques with hair. One could put a gold ring sizer in it if it is too large. The pearls surrounding the hair work are in good condition; in fact, the entire ring is in excellent condition. The inscription on the back reads: Sarah Reeve died March 12 1823 aged 81 years, I often wonder why some memorial rings have no dedication or only initials. This way we know exactly to whom this ring memorializes.
