Georgian Diamond Urn Mourning Ring


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.


  • Materials

    14k rose gold (tests), silver, black & white enamel, 12 1 - 2.5mm rose cut diamonds, 6mm x 4.4mm pear shaped rose cut diamond

  • Age

    memorial dedication 5 Sept 1798

  • Condition

    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

  • Size

    8.75, can be slightly sized down; 1/2" head, 1/8" shank
