This lovely rosy gold oval shaped face mourning ring with a sepia painting of a pretty woman placing a wreath on a tomb, with two birds resting on the tomb....it is just such a wonderfully peaceful scene. It is painted on ivory and is under crystal glass. There are tiny snippets of hair worked into the weeping willow’s leaves. The ring has an almost 3-D look to it.

In the 1780-1790’s the most popular style of mourning rings were sepia paintings on a thin piece of ivory or velum with scenes of a man or woman mourning in a graveyard usually beside a tomb or holding an urn with small snippets of hair camouflaged into the scene (most popular was in the weeping willow tree).

This ring was made right after the Revolutionary War...how cool is that?

I GUARANTEE that this is an authentic, genuine mourning ring from the late 1700's.

The ring is unmarked but has been tested for at least 10 karat gold

Circa 1780-1790

CONDITION: The ring is in very good used condition commensurate with age. There is a faint, hairline crack in the paining, in the tree on the top of the ring, see last pic.

Ring Size 6

DIMENSIONS: The face of the ring measures 25.4mm length x 16.8mm width (or 1 inch by 5/8 of an inch) Band Width is 5mm and tapers to 2mm in back.
WEIGHT is 5.1 grams
