14k Gold, Human Hair

Circa 1830-1900

Size 6.5

A sentimental Memento Mori ring with a lovely little engraved plaque bearing the name Lucy. Perhaps this ring was worn by her mother, or sister as a remembrance of her. It is inlaid with a flat woven brain of her hair; the hair is in wonderful condition considering it's age. The plaque has beautiful scroll work. The top left corner is a bit worn down; perhaps when worn it was stacked with another ring?

The band is a quarter inch wide in 14k gold with a detailed milgrain edge. The bezel is high enough to protect the hair and can certainly be worn without worry of damaging the braid.

This ring has no hallmarks, but was very skillfully made.

Due to the inlay on this ring, it cannot be re-sized.
