*This Ring Cannot Be Resized. 

We’ve stumbled upon a beautiful concept: a memorial ring turned into the perfect modern day band; a continuation of honoring love.

During the 18th century, memorial bands were a common way to commemorate a loved one. Sometimes commissioned from the living or deceased will of a family member or friend, memorial pieces were common yet extremely sentimental. It was a practice of always carrying your love close to you, a constant reminder of the heart.

Similarly, wedding bands have symbolized a connection and promise of unending love for thousands of years. Dating back to ancient Egypt, when woven reeds or leather were used to create a ring, the circle was used as a symbol of eternal love and the negative space between was an entrance to other worlds. Possibly even the afterlife.

Both memorial rings and wedding bands are rooted in the same philosophy, continual love. Till death do us part after all. That’s why we think this gorgeous Georgian memorial band would make an oh-so-special wedding band. Crafted in 18k gold, the enamel work is worn down creating something perfectly simple and unique.
