Georgian Amethyst Mourning Ring c.1830
A beautiful late Georgian amethyst and enamel mourning ring.
This stylish ring has a facetted table cut amethyst set to the centre within a border of black enamel. The enamel is offset with a gold border engraved with a foliate design. The ring has 'split' shoulders and a closed back typical of the Georgian era. The ring is in fabulous condition but with wear to the facets of the amethyst consistent with its age.
This ring, in common with the vast majority of Georgian pieces is a dress ring and will not take 'heavy' wear being over 200 years old. Rings of this age and in good condition are increasingly hard to find.
