Please take a good look at this amazing Pearl and Guiolloche Hair Mourning Ring!

This lovely ring is so unusual and fun to wear. It has some really interesting aspects to it: if you look at the picture you will see that the ring is blue enamel, in great shape, slightly worn on the sides due to age. This amazing blue ring has a little window at the back that has a piece of hair from the person for whom the ring was made in honor of. Victorians were morbidly fascinated by death, and anyone familiar with mourning rings knows that a memento of the deceased, in the form of hair, was a common way to carry a physical reminder of the passed loved- one. In today's world, I think that would be considered a bit Goth and over the top... Hair does not decompose, though, and can be saved indefinitely.

This royal blue beauty sports a glowing half pearl in a star-shaped bezel setting. The pearl is securely mounted into the center of this pretty ring. This Mourning Ring is acid - tested and guaranteed 14 K yellow gold.

Guiolloche is the French word that describes enameled metal. It was difficult to do and required heating of the metals twice. It wears extremely well and I would expect another hundred years of bright blue enamel on this ring.

Free shipping on this ring in the US. size 4.5, probably not re-sizable due to risk of enamel breakage..

*Due to the age of some of these pieces some items will not be stamped. The National Stamping Act was not enacted until 1906, before 1906 jewelry was not legally required to have a karat mark. This is one way to date items prior to the Art Nouveau time period.
