On offer this rare authentic English antique Victorian c1870s hair ring, crafted in 15K yellow gold. Extending around the outer shank are four compartments containing finely plaited brunette hair, interspersed with five plates featuring finely etched designs, depicting floral and geometric motifs.

The hair is intact and not frayed. On the top face a shield measuring 9.2mm (L) x 8.8mm (W).

Victorian hair rings are extremely rare and seldom contain their fragile contents in tact. The inside of the band is not hallmarked or engraved, so the identity of the love interest or deceased is unknown.

Hair rings were commissioned as either mourning pieces or sometimes also given as love tokens. The total weight of the ring is 3.1 grams and it is a US size 7. It is in excellent condition. 15K gold content has been verified by acid testing.

Patina is consistent with age (I would not recommend cleaning this off). Please see photos for more details. This item is in the category "Jewelry & Watches\Vintage & Antique Jewelry\Mourning Jewelry". The seller is "huntlym" and is located in this country: US.

This item can be shipped worldwide.
