About the Item

A stunning, fine and impressive antique 1780's black enamel and 18 karat yellow gold, sepia mourning ring; part of our diverse antique Georgian jewellery and estate jewelry collections. This stunning fine and impressive antique Georgian mourning ring has been crafted in 18k yellow gold. The oval anterior face of the ring is embellished with a sepia panel depicting an urn under a weeping willow*. The posterior surface of the ring is embellished with the contemporary engraved inscription 'E Jopling, Ol 30 Augt, 1780, Oe 49'. The tapering shoulders meld with the sepia setting and meld to a plain ring shank, ornamented to the anterior with impressive black enamel and gold foliate designs. This Georgian mourning ring has been independently tested using state of the art technology (Niton XL2 Analyzer) and verified as 18k gold. This stunning sepia ring is the finest example of its type you could hope to acquire. NOTE: * A weeping willow is symbolic of mourning, sorrow and grief. Typically, they are depicted draped over urns, weeping figures, tombs and other such categorised items. Images do not always reflect the true color and brilliance of gemstones and diamonds. The video however provides a truer representation of the actual color and showcases each stone. Condition This stunning antique Georgian ring is exceptional quality. The ring is an exceptional gauge of gold and is in exceptional condition with a clear hand engraved inscription to the posterior.
