Description

DATE: Georgian 1793

This wonderful 18th Century memorial ring is ALL about the details. The head features a single pearl within a pool of royal blue guilloché enamel, surrounded by black and white enamel borders; the shoulders display an intricate laurel motif finished in further white and black enamel work. An inscription behind the head reads: "GD ob 18th July 1793 ages 2 years." While we'll never know exactly who the GD it commemorates was, it's a beautiful memorial that has endured through the centuries.
