This is the most incredible memorial ring I’ve ever had, with a deep and clear hallmark for 1854. All in solid 18ct with black enamel detailing all over, the three dimensionality of this ring is just museum quality. This will be a true “Cinderella” moment for someone as it is a size 7, and looks just amazing on the hand. I love that this cameo is different from others that I’ve seen because she appears to be wearing a snood, almost like a Dutch masterwork, which is an influence we often see. She includes a locket back, and I truly believe I will not have the opportunity to have another ring like this. When I saw her for the first time, I was just astounded.
