RARE "BODY" SKELETON RING - SOLD


£0.00
Description
This is now SOLD but we have other Skeleton Rings - please email us here for more information

This is a very rare memorial ring. It is in 18ct gold and around the outside of the ring is a representation of a complete body skeleton.  It starts at the skull, topped with a crown, and continues around the ring with ribs,arms and legs. Then comes the signs of demise,the sand timer and pick and shovel,denoting time has run out and a grave has been dug. I think these are the most wonderful memento mori rings, and buy them whenever I see them. There is a very good example of this rare ring in Georgian Jewellery book by Ginny Dawes with Olivia Collings. Around the inside of the ring is written the legend : E.N. Ob : 14 Nov 1731
