Item Description:

This is a solid band mother of pearl ring size 5 with a darker shell inlay at the top and flat oval base. I believe this to be a mourning or remembrance ring that would normally have a photo on the oval top. This one has no photo - could have been a sample or the photo could have just worn off. Don't see too many of them and this one is in good condition. Ring is actually a creamier color than is shown in photo. Just over 1/2" wide at top.

Mourning Jewelry actually began around the 17th century and continued in various mediums throughout England and France. The popularity peaked during the reign of Queen Victoria upon the dealth of Prince Albert.  Popularity increased in the United States during the Civil War and woven hair jewelry became a popular parlour art.  Please visit our Mourning Gallery for mourning jewelry resources, sympathy and condolence quotes, photos and more.  Our Main Site Gallery will list our current items for sale.
