Antique Georgian 18k Urn & Willow Black Band Memorial Ring
Details: This beautiful Georgian-era hand-painted ring is a commissioned memorial piece. Memorial pieces were a celebration of a loved one's life and a statement of grief and status. Thoughtfully rendered, it depicts an urn sitting beneath weeping willows. The enamel work around the band tells us the ring was made in memorial of William Harrison - Obituary date of April 15, 1777.
Here at Metier, we have always been very taken with these very sentimental and highly detailed memorial pieces.
Measurements: The ring size is a 9 and cannot be sized due to the enamel work on the band.
Origin: English, c. 1777
