This amazing antique ring features a centre banded agate stone set in a shield shape. The sides have beautiful enamel work, however the back enamel has been worn over time. This ring would have been a mourning ring to commemorate the life of a loved one that had passed. It looks like the back would have had the name of the person in enamel as we can see the start of a letter. The inside hair compartment is empty. From the hallmarks we can see the ring comes from London and was made in 1852. This antique ring is truly an amazing piece of wearable history!
