** UNIQUE OFFERINGS IN ANTIQUE AND VINTAGE - ESTATE JEWELRY **

Here is a beautiful antique Victorian mourning brooch pin. Inside the highly detailed 10K gold is patch of interwoven, rows of hair locks. It is seed pearls surround this beautiful and unique mourning ring. It has a patch of blonde braided hair set under that small rectangular glass crystal. It is inscribed "Julia Harrison, Dec 18, 1817", below that is inscribed "Mar 9, 1911", so not sure which dates are the actual date of death - but this is nearly 200 years old!! Exceptional condition. PLEASE click the photos to enlarge and see all the details.

Let me point out that this ring has been previously either enlarged or repaired as it has a touch of solder on the sides, which doesn't affect its appearance. Because of this imperfection, I have priced it accordingly, although its so minor its really a non-issue, but I want you to be aware of any flaws. There is also the teeniest ding on the back rim of the ring - doesn't show in any way, but again its there. The ring band itself has a decorative double etched trim running along the entire length of the band. So pretty....For surviving nearly 200 years through God only knows what, its fantastic!

It is sized at 8 1/4 and can easily withstand to be sized by any fine jeweler. they can also remove the tiny ding if you're already doing anything to this ring to wear it, otherwise, just leave as is. Highly collectible value to this piece if you collect antique Mourning jewelry, this is a true KEEPER! Any questions, please ask. this should go to a very eclectic Buyer or Collector.

** Check my shop for another piece of Mourning jewelry - a gorgeous brooch that would go so well with this ring its listed in shop....great set of RARE Victorian Estate jewelry to own.

An excellent gift item for yourself or someone special.

All estate jewelry has been decribed to the best of my ability and are culled from various sources, and many pieces acquired from dealers in Belguim, Amsterdam, Vienna ,UK and my personal collection of one of a kind rareities I've inherited from my parents, grandparents and relatives for as long as I can remember. I have also added pieces of my own I've purchased over the years.

I am looking to expand my personal fine art photography collection and making these pieces available to that end. Art in exchange for Art.

I started this project almost a year ago and picking it back up. here are two fabulous sales of Antique Estate Fine jewelry I've sold and the incredible feedback from the customers who bought them. Buy with confidence.
