This is a beautiful example of an early Victorian mourning ring from 1863 (taken from the date of the inscription and the hallmark). The shield at the front of the ring is engraved and set with a single half pearl. The band had been enamelled (probably more recently as the ring would have had hairwork originally, but the black enamelling is in keeping with the style of Victorian mourning rings.

Inside the ring, is an in memoriam inscription which reads: “In memory of JJ Ginger Ob. 15 Jan’y 1863”. The ring is also fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1863 and for 9ct gold.

A find like this in such good shape is rare; it is a real collectors’ piece with a history going back some 150+ years.
