DELICATE FORGET-ME-NOT TRIBUTE ( Victorian Mourning Jewelry Ring ): This dainty Victorian Mourning Ring caught my eye with its simplicity of sentiment. (1860-80) Tested as 15KT gold, this lovely quality English mourning ring is beautifully made with a tapered band, ornate black vitreous enamel decoration and set with lustrous tiny pearls in the shape of a forget-me-not, complete with leaves for a total of seven pearls. (Of course, pearls symbolize tears.) I seldom buy rings because sizing is a problem. This band should be able to be made smaller if desired. It would make a lovely “pinky ring”. There is a hair memento space on the back of the flower, but it has lost its glass. “XVII” (17) is engraved on the back – perhaps the age when a beloved daughter passed on. A very sweet ring for a lady who prefers dainty and delicate jewelry.

Condition: Excellent. Faint signs of wear – no loss or damage.
Size: U.S. ring size 6. Center oval 1/2" high, 3/8” wide.
