Story

Ever aware of the temporal nature of life, the Victorians continued the tradition of remembering loved ones who had passed by immortalizing them in jewelry such as this 15k yellow gold ring. A black enamel shield displays in block capital letters the missive “IN MEMORY OF”. The shank is a superb example of gold open work revealing the interior of the band with its plait of blonde and brown woven and braided hair which surround the inner shank. Engraved botanical motifs cover the surface of the shank.
