Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Lovely ornately chased 18K gold Georgian memorial ring dedicated to Queen Caroline of Brunswick. She was married to the future George the IV who was already married illegally to Maria Fitzherbert. Nine months after the wedding Caroline had a child, Princess Charlotte of Wales, and she and George separated. She was very popular in England and George was despised for his immoral behavior. When she died memorial rings were made for the court with the inscription: "In Memory of Caroline of Brunswick the injured Queen of England Born 17 May 1768, Died 7 Aug' 1821". This is one of those rings. The top flips open and reveals a lock of her hair. The ring is a size 7 1/2 and measures 3/8" at its widest.
