Skull & Crossbones Mourning Ring Dated 1819









Pictured is a very rare Victorian 'Memento Mori' mourning ring I have noticed selling on-line. It has woven hair of the deceased within the crystal dome along with two silver Skull & Crossbones. Around the crystal gallery are deep blue Sapphires. The shank is inlaid with black enamel. See the inscribing inside the ring! I have two such rings but nowhere near as detailed as this one. Probably the sweetest Mourning Ring I have ever seen. Unfortunately I dont have $2,400 bucks as Mourning Curios are my favorite passion.
