We are delighted to be selling this one of a kind piece - a Victorian era mourning signet ring, set with black onyx and decorated with black enamel. The outside of the band reads 'In Memory Of', with inside engraving reading 'John Hordon ob 23 aug 1853 at 65' and 'Mary Jayne Hordon Ob 18, apl 1874, at 84' - meaning this is a double mourning signet ring, commemorating the life of two people. Furthermore, the onyx top is hinged and opens to reveal a glass compartment underneath containing a small lock of hair. A beautiful and rare find!

Hallmarked as 18ct gold, dated Birmingham 1853.

The approximate weight is 9.6 grams.

Please note the antique ring box pictured is for display purposes only. Thank you.

Ring size S ½ (UK) or 9 3/8 (US) - due to the enamel and glass, this ring cannot be sized.
For UK to US ring size conversions we use www.ringsizes.co as our reference chart.

CONDITION: There is some loss to the enamel on the outside of the band. Otherwise the condition is good, the hinged top opens and closes as it should, the inner engraving is crisp and clear and there is no damage to the onyx or to the glass underneath.
