Memorial rings like this are so rare to find- we simply don’t see these anymore. Commemorating the death of Mr. Forness, this Georgian memorial ring maintains the original enamel and is in a very desirable thinner stacking size. In 18ct, this is an excellent example that will be a stacking mainstay in any carefully curated collection.
Materials and Features:
18ct gold, enamel
Circa 1822, English
“JNo Forness, OB. 16 May 1822, AE57”
Weight: 3.14 grams
Size: 7.0 US
Condition: Very good. Minor associated age wear; some nipping on the enamel but such is to be expected for an enamel band that is about to celebrate its 200th birthday. We believe the ring may have been lovingly sized at one point.
Please view and inspect any photos closely. We endeavor to fully disclose all condition information clearly and concisely, however, please note that what qualifies as excellent condition for historical jewelry differs from modern and contemporary pieces; please take the age of the piece into account when examining the piece. Minor age wear is typical and to be expected for antique and vintage jewelry. Unless otherwise stated, gemstones have not been officially graded for color, clarity, or treatment by GIA; any information provided is our own educated, professional assessment.
