Gem Set Love

1 item left

From our collection of Victorian Mourning jewelry comes this Fabulous ring in 18k gold with woven hair and an enameled plaque set with 3 natural pearls. 

I wonder from the design of the cutouts in the band, which resemble Victorian playing card suits if this ring was made in Remembrance of a card player. It may be just a whimsy on my part. This rich yellow gold ring is hallmarked on the inside with English Hallmarks for Chester, 18k, and a date mark for 1887. 

The Victorians held great meaning in symbolism and that is reflected in the use of colors and gems in mourning pieces. The Pearls on this ring represent tears for the loss of a loved one, and the black enamel is for mourning, the loved ones hair is plaited and placed in the band, visible thru the cutouts in the shapes of diamonds and clubs.
