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.

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.
