Description: For sale here is a lovely, antique, 9K or higher gold, mourning ring band from the 19th century. There is tightly woven hair fitted into a grove on the outside of the band. There is also a small, shield on the top of the ring that is unengraved. You may be able to have something engraved if it’s small enough. The inside of the band is smooth and ready for an inscription. It’s in lovely condition although you can see some of the glue used when it was made on one side, I don’t think it detracts and it’s at a good price point. Background: This piece is unengraved which is not too unusual because this kind of piece would have been available to order from a catalog. Materials: 9K gold, human hair, glue. Measurements: US size 8.25. Weight: Approximately: 1.67 grams. Condition: Good, antique condition with wear keeping with age and use. The hair work is intact. There are some scratches on the shield as seen with magnification, but this is less evident when you’re wearing it than it is in my highly magnified photos. There is some glue on the hair as mentioned above. Please use the photos as a guide as they form part of the description and the condition of a piece is subjective.
