182 Sentimental Blue Enamel & Hair Ring


 This gold and enamel ring is a lovely example of a sentimental ring. It is not memorial, but was probably made for a mother, whose child was leaving home to travel abroad for maybe a long time. She would want a memento of her child and their hair is the most organic thing she could have, to keep close to her while they were away.

The ring is in 15ct gold and has a hair locket with gold initials HA set on top. This is set under glass and is surrounded by a pretty pale blue enamel, decorated with white dots. Obviously a treasured ring. It is undated but would have been made sometime between 1780/1820.  

UK size O.1/2.  US 8.1/2  The length of the front of ring is just about 1.1/4"
