THIS OUTSTANDING 19thC RING HAS NOW BEEN REDUCED TO CLEAR ~ FROM $2,750 To ~ $1950 ~ MAKING THIS CLASSIC ENGLISH ANTIQUE RING EXTREMELY GOOD VALUE!
In the Georgian style ~ Yet made 1857 ~ to commemorate the passing of Captain J.G.King. Research into Capt; King .
This is a superior quality ring & it remains in outstanding original condition. The inside of the band bares the inscription ….. “Captain J.G.King d. 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.
