An artful, sparkly diamond urn stands out on black enamel with a slim white stripe around it. On the back, it's engraved for Caroline Compton who died in 1798 in Naples at age 64.
14k rose gold (tests), silver, black & white enamel, 12 1 - 2.5mm rose cut diamonds, 6mm x 4.4mm pear shaped rose cut diamond
memorial dedication 5 Sept 1798
Very good - we've had 3 of the smallest rose cut diamonds replaced (they were missing when we acquired the ring); the urn was riveted in place after the engraving so the dedication is partially obscured, it also slightly faded in places commensurate with age and use
8.75, can be slightly sized down; 1/2" head, 1/8" shank
