Victorian Prince Albert Memorial Ring

$2,800

Amateur composer, aesthete, abolitionist, proponent of science and fiscal reform, and consort to the Queen, when Prince Albert died in 1861 the entirety of Great Britain observed a period of mourning. In fact, Queen Victoria remained in mourning for her beloved husband for the rest of her long life. This rare and wonderful ring made in 18k gold and set with a photo of Prince Albert commemorates the passing of HRH and would have been purchased and worn by a well-to-do commoner.
