Ref  LW9   Crowned by Love

A most unsual French mourning ring, circa 1790. The tapered rose-gold ring shank supports a compartment set with an intricate weave of  blonde and brown hair. Surmounting the hair is a gold crown and two sets of initials under crystal. MMJ & MNL are crowned by love and united in death. The ring is size O and 1/2 [US 7 and 1/4] and the head of the ring measures 1 and 1/3 inches by 3/4 of an inch. These late 18th century French plaque rings with curved backs are beautifully constructed and so comfortable on the finger.
