This fabulous collectable Mourning ring is steeped in English 

history, set in 18ct yellow gold and set with a 

beautifully detailed shank.

On the inside it is engraved ‘Margaret McBaen Died 17 July 1818’

The front window has a crystal section with plaited hair underneath. 

Mourning jewellery mirrored the lives and times of the people 

who wore it. It was a souvenir to remember a loved one, a reminder 

to the living of the inevitability of death, a status symbol, especially 

during the Victorian Era. Mourning Jewellery has been worn from the 

middle ages up until the Victorian era. The jewellery consists of 

formulaic rings made of gold and black enamel and decorated with 

standard memento mori such as skulls and coffins.

A black enamel border chases around the outer gallery.

Set with a lovely shank that is detailed all the way round with 

beautiful all round workmanship.

The crystal window is a little scuffed but this is nothing for 

its age, being 199 years old.

It weighs 2.2 grams

Measures O ½ in the UK or 7 ½ USA

The face of this ring measures 11mm across x 9mm down

The spread of the ring measures 18mm across

Stands 2mm off the finger

In excellent condition
