Georgian 18ct Gold Memorial Ring (Part of a Pair of Memorial Rings)

Rare Find
165 Admirers

A lovely Georgian memorial ring, in great condition. The face, worked in a mixture of ink and hair, contains an urn with two angels hovering above and the monogram ‘DC’, for Daniel Craister. Surrounding the urn is the inscription, ‘Not Lost but Gone Before’. On the reverse is engraved ‘Dan Craister Obt 22nd may 1779 Aed 26’. The white enamel on the shank signifies that he was unmarried.

This ring would have been made for Daniel’s father 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 mother would have worn can be found here.

A beautiful, rare and sentimental piece! Both rings should be kept together.
