William Perrott died on October 18th, 1869. He was 63 years old. Almost exactly one year later, his wife Rebecca followed him into the great beyond. She was 64. Someone who loved them both commissioned this "IN MEMORY OF" ring with teeny tiny script inside telling us the -partial- story of this married couple. The typography is exquisite: Neo-gothic / Renaissance vibes.
18k gold (marked), black enamel, 6 1.5mm rose cut diamonds, 3.5mm split pearl
Birmingham hallmarks for 1870
Very good - locket space on the underside of the head is missing the lens (and obviously also the hair work that it once held)
6.75, cannot be resized; 10.3mm head, 5.3mm shank
