A row of pearls appears with the word "memory" split in half. This must have been one of the many mass-produced rings made in the English city of Chester at the end of the 19th century; hallmarks tell us it was produced in 1895. To personalize it, you would have added a loved one's braided hair to the locket on the interior of the band. It's empty now.
15k gold (marked), 5 seed pearls of graduated sizes
Chester assay mark for 1895
Very good - surface wear commensurate with age and use; locket space on the underside of the head is empty and missing its glass face but would have originally held braided hair
7, can be resized but note that resizing may result in damage or loss to the hallmarks; 8mm head, 2.9mm shank
