A ring like this one was likely the first jewel that would be worn when a Goeorgian lady was moving out of the first year of mourning, purple was the first color that could be introduced after wearing all black for a year, and along with white and gray, could be added in little splashes, like this fabulous ring.

This Georgian Dame got a little new life breathed into her old bones of late, she was in rough shape when we found her, so we opened up the back and removed the discolored foil, we left the bezel open, this way it can be worn and enjoyed and cleaned! We think we dusted her up pretty good!
