TINY TOKEN OF DEVOTION ( Antique Victorian Mourning Jewelry Hair Ring ): Although I seldom purchase dainty jewelry – preferring large pieces myself – this tiny mourning ring spoke to me with its simplicity of sentiment. Lovingly worn, this treasured mourning ring contains gray braided hair bezel set in a glass locket compartment. (c. 1893) This delicate gold ring has a full set of English hallmarks inside of the band – 5 marks in fact! The hallmarks indicate that this ring was made in London in 1893 of 22 KT gold and it has the maker's mark “W.W.” The ring size is 7 1/2. Petite and discrete, this feminine Antique Mourning Ring is a touchstone from the past, an age where grief and remembrance were an integral part of life.

Condition: Excellent. All original. Slight signs of wear commensurate with age and use.
Size: Ring size 7 1/2. Oval glass compartment 3/8” high, 1/4” wide.
