Georgian Mourning Ring
Mourning jewelry grew in popularity throughout the 1700s--their decorative functions took on many forms ranging from rings, brooches, pins, necklaces, and many other accessories with the intent of memorializing a loved one who had passed. This gold filled, Georgian ring (think Pride and Prejudice times) features hand-engraved details along the ring shank and glass pocket frame. A small piece of hair or cloth would traditionally be tucked behind the glass. The initials "E.H.G." have been hand engraved on the back of this ring.
