Enameled Victorian mourning ring. This is so beautiful! I love the detail of the inscription inside. All I can say is that if I die, fools had better make some memorial jewelry about me, or I'll haunt them noisily and appear as a clown.

Rare Georgian 15ct Gold Swivel Enamel Hair Locket Ring

This ring dates from 1728; the absolute height of the memento mori style. It not only features the affectation of the ‘coffin’ shaped crystal, but it encapsulates the skeleton inlaid in black enamel around the band. Further to this, the element of the full skeleton inside the coffin crystal completes the sentiment. There is nowhere on the jewel that death is not represented.

Love after Death: The Beautiful, Macabre World of Mourning Jewelry

Late Georgian Era Mourning Ring, Sepia on Ivory with tiny bits of hair on the ship. The ship is a symbol for passage into the afterlife. The foreground of the image sets up an additional allusion, with an anchor resting on the shore representing hope.
