A lovely Georgian memorial ring, in great condition. The top, worked in a mixture of ink and hair, contains a lady sitting by an urn. Under the glass, and surrounding the urn is the inscription, ‘Weep not but prepare to follow’. Inside the shank is engraved ‘Daniel Craister Ob 22nd may 1779 Aet 26’. The white enamel on the shank signifies that he was unmarried.

This ring would have been made for Daniel’s mother to wear in memory of him, with his actual hair used to form the designs on the front.

The other memorial ring that Dan’s father would have worn can be found here.
