*This Ring Cannot Be Resized

The sentiment of memorial rings has always been one that has struck a chord with us. The trend started all the way back in the 14th century so style and materials have certainly changed over the centuries, but the connection that a memorial ring symbolizes have been consistently meaningful.

 

The creation of memorial jewelry started because photography had yet to be invented, and their was a longing to hold onto a tangible object that reminded you of your loved one. Memorial pieces were often commissioned by the person before their passing, written in their will, their last gift to their friends and family.

 

This memorial ring from the early 1800s is a perfect example why mourning jewelry was all the rage in the 19th century. It has a pristine oval rose cut diamond set into a warm yellow gold. The shank is a classic style for memorial rings of that time, carved to look like a bone, further representing the death of the beloved. The inner band lacks any engraving, just waiting to have someone’s personal message of love to be inscribed. All the components of this ring work together beautifully, to represent something even more beautiful.
