Bakelite mourning or sweetheart rings were in fashion during the 40s and 50s. Simple in design, the photo of the loved one was decoupaged between the layers on the ring's front. These rings were so popular, they were even made by prisoners, who melted down all plastics they could collect - these are some of the most beautiful examples.

This particular ring was professionally produced and is very unique in materials and design. This one is bakelite (unlike the heavier black rings) with a root beer brown band and an ivory base and frame for the photo. The ring is very delicate in design,weighing much less than the black mourning rings of the era. It is also a size 5-6. The photo is yellowed but clearly visible. It is of an earthy grandmotherly woman. There is a bit of wear on the frame surrounding the photo. This would be a beautiful collectible or a unique ring to wear.

I'm listing lots of additional mourning rings, so please check the rest of my site at:
