NOTE: *The Victorians honoured their dead with elaborate mourning traditions often deeply entwined with outward appearance, and thus, clothing and jewellery. Mourning jewellery came in all shapes, sizes and forms; rings, brooches, pendants, and watches were often decorated with black enamel, jet, agate, or other dark gemstones with only a few exceptions.


This impressive ring is fine quality, set with impressive original seed pearls.

The Victorian pearl ring is a very good gauge of gold and is in excellent condition.
