In Memory - Victorian Enamel Crest Ring of 1859

A crest, a cameo, a signet, a memorial ring, a man's or woman's ring, hallmarked and dated, engraved and personalized, a locket and in memory of a named gentleman...need we state this has it all?

Dating to 1859, the ring is a testament wrought in 18k gold and black enamel to the life of William Ross, Esquire who passed in that same year, or perhaps the year after.

The interior is hand engraved with this name as well as fully hallmarked for 18k, London, and a date letter for 1859 as well as a maker's mark of JW. A glass-covered secret locket rests at the apex of the interior.

A black and white carved sardonyx agate is skillfully created in the image of a shield or crest. White in relief with ebony below, it is a striking aristocratic cameo.

This oval agate is set within a fine bezel of gold. Scrolls and volutes embellish the gallery. The entire shank is laid with enamel with the words, IN MEMORY OF clear and distinct in gold.
