Victorian Blue Enamel & Diamond Mourning Ring

$2,200

This bold ring with vibrant blue guilloché enamel and a single old mine cut diamond stylistically looks like it belongs to the 1820s, however, turn it over to reveal the dedication, "In memory of Sarah Ketterer Ob 3 Septr [September] 1849". Hm. We would venture to guess that the ring was actually made in the later Georgian period for wear unrelated to mourning and was transformed into an ad hoc memorial ring when Sarah Ketterer passed away in 1849.
