What a Stunningly Beautiful & Superb Georgian 15ct Gold & Enamel Ring ~ Captain J.G.King c1857  engraved  ~

In the Georgian style  ~  Yet made 1857 ~ to commemorate the passing of  Captain J.G.King.   Research into Capt;  King will be conducted in due course.

This is a superior quality ring & it remains in outstanding original condition.   The inside of the band bares the inscription  …..  “Captain J.G.King died 6th Feb; 1857 in his 80th year”

Such a short statement   ~   yet so much can be gleaned from so few words.     Obviously a man of means , kept a good diet & had means to keep well.  A Naval Capt’  –  A Military Capt’ ??     With  ‘ Britannia ruling the waves’  for the entirety of Captain King’s 80 years of life & the fact that Naval Captain’s tended to outlive their Military equivalents   ~   I am leaning towards the good Captain King being an English Naval Captain  &  will no doubt be proved wrong!

Naturally we all have different tastes , likes & dislikes  ~  Yet to my eye  ~  this ring is exceptionally beautiful!   The entire ring is very solid & well made in every aspect.   The gold holds a fine colour & with the beautifully designed enamel work allowing patterns of gold to shine through the black enamel  ,  highlighting the entire pattern & accentuating the thickness & size of the beautifully hand crafted  15ct gold ring.

Further details to be added shortly regarding weight , size etc ………..  Yet we just wanted to share the beauty of this extremely interesting 165 yr old historically important gold memorial ring with you.

I believe that these are equal too Or even More appealing , interesting &  ‘of love’  than a wedding ring!    Made by/for  a loved one , in this case possibly Captain J.G.King’s wife Or daughter  ~  out of love , respect , loss & devotion   ~   for & too a man whom obviously meant a great deal & was loved by ‘the wearer’   ~~

“These rings come from Love”     ~~   They are not “cut off a dead mans finger”  or some similar gross belief.     They were commissioned to own & wear with Love , out of Love & for the Love ………..  of the passed.       These do not come from a failed love ,  or a failed affair ………… these were borne with & from love.
