All we can say about this piece is "wow!"

Dated to 1877, this Victorian mourning ring is in like-new condition. Three small rose cut diamonds are vertically set in a marquise bezel and are enveloped by twelve seed pearls. The real fun begins with the band.

On the outer side of the shank, the 18K yellow gold words "IN • MEM • ORY • OF" are gleaned through exquisitely pitch black enamel. The band's interior is engraved, in cursive, with: "Thomas Ritchie...23rd May 1877."

What's stunning about this piece is that as of 2022, this ring is 145 years old -- and it looks brand new.
