Georgian Rose Cut Diamond and Enamel Mourning Ring, Circa 1752

This item is in-stock for delivery or pickup.

Georgian silver/18k yellow gold and diamond ring. Delve into a poignant piece of history with this treasure steeped in both elegance and sentiment. Crafted during the Georgian era, this ring bears witness to a tale of love and loss, its design embodying the solemn beauty of mourning jewelry. Set in silver-topped 18k yellow gold, the ring features a beautiful rose-cut diamond with shimmering facets. Adorning the band is white enameling, framing the inscription that tells the story of William Willington, Esquire. The inscription reads: "WM 'Willington ESQ OB 24 MAR 1752 AE:30," a solemn tribute to a life cut short. White enameling used during this time would typically represent women, children, or the unmarried. William's legacy is deeply entwined with history, as records trace his lineage back to the English Civil War and the siege of Tamworth Castle. As the son of Waldive Willington of Hurley Hall, his family's heritage is one of honor and courage, with connections to Oliver Cromwell's Royalist Garrison. This ring, crafted in memory of William's untimely passing at the age of 30, is a testament to the enduring bond between loved ones, whether it was intended for his mother or perhaps his wife, if he had one. It is a museum-quality ring, a rare piece of jewelry that offers a glimpse into the past and the lives of those who came before us. As such, it cannot be resized or repaired in any manner. Extreme care must be taken when wearing it.
