Each shoulder is adorned with pyramids of pearls. The body of the ring is 10k gold. The pearls are set in pie crust bezels common to the era. The band is engraved to resemble feathers. Circa 1830.
The Georgians held great meaning in symbolism and that is reflected in the use of colors and gems in mourning pieces. Pearls symbolize the tears wept at the loss of a loved one. What an extraordinary and beautiful piece of history.
