Georgian Natural Seed Pearl Mourning Hair Locket Ring Circa 1820
To the centre of the eighteen pearls is a locket hair compartment with braided hair, this little panel measures 13mm x 6mm and is in very good condition. The entire ring measure a lovely and showy 1.8cm x 1.1cm.
This lovely ring started its life roughly 200 years ago as a brooch we believe and has been expertly converted into the ring you see before you.
The entire back is gold enclosed and then to a fine gold band, with just a little shoulder detail, and which is so comfortable to wear.
The gold construction is of around 15ct gold and is bright and lush and befitting to the piece.
