This is Stunning!
Memento Mori stands for “remember you must die” the skull motif is a prominent motif of the Memento mori, only jewellery can convey a harsh reality in such an elegant form as expression of people mortality
Here we have an authentic pre – Georgian Stuart period example – English origin crafted during 1680 ca of solid 22 KT gold professionally tested, marked with several hallmarks hard to read due to the wear
Fascinating skull & cross bones depicted and kept under glass
Gorgeous oval head measuring 12 mm. x 11 mm. joined to delightful decorated shank in the taste used at the time with a close back mounted crown
The ring will come boxed in its original case box as found it
Very good condition all throughout – we will not re-size this ring due to rarity and integrity although it could possibly in minimal sizes by laser we will leave the issue to the buyer
For being all authentic pre-Georgian rare age and historic value this ring would normally retail over £6500 our reserve is much less and for this is a real treasure to get hold of – one of the most impressive and beautiful of all could be an unique engagement ring!
