An unusual 18ct gold memorial ring which is engraved inside the shank “mrs Elizth (Elizabeth) Blaxland Obt 10 oct 1839 ae (aged) 92.” It is clearly hallmarked for London 1839.

It says in black enamel around the shank “In memory of.” Each plaque is slightly concave. On the top is set an oval bloodstone. As an example of a mourning ring from that period it is in excellent condition and would suit a collector.
