Unusual Antique 'In Memory Of' Ring Black Enamel with Wavy Edge Victorian 18k Gold

A ring as a keepsake is a beautiful thing. It can be carried around on a chain or worn on a finger, you can take it into a tough exam for good luck, on a road trip for a companion. Pictures and postcards are wonderful mementos, but a ring is a circle of eternity, of always remembering. It’s a charm for your hand that's filled with a lingering joie de vivre.    

This antique memorial ring is a rare and unusual find, never before have I seen one with this kind of wavy, undulating edge filled with lovely details (and I’ve seen a lot of memorial rings!). It was made in 18 karat gold in London and is decorated with black enamel, the absence of which spells out ‘In Memory Of’. This ring is fully hallmarked with the letter year code, ‘N’, denoting that 1848 was the year it was handcrafted. The number, ‘18’ and the crown mark indicate it was made in England of 18 karat gold. The Maker’s Mark reads, ‘T.E’. The lion’s head indicates it was assayed in London.  The cursive inscription inside the ring reads, “Eduard Solly, Oct,,22nd,,1848 Aged 44 Yrs”. This ring is a size 10.5 and cannot be re-sized, it is 10 mm wide at the widest point. It weighs 6.3 grams. The enamel is in very good condition. 

These memorial rings are filled with elegance and love. Perfect for the collector's jewelry box and finger, a reminder to enjoy each and every day of your ‘one wild and precious life’.
