1833 Georgian Chased Turquoise Ring

A lovely late Georgian era mourning ring, crafted in solid 15k yellow gold, consisting of a half-band heavily chased with floral scrolls, with the center set with four small Persian turquoise cabochons. The ring face reverse is thus inscribed: “Isabella Moore Ob. 16 Feb 1833 Ae 71.” The craftsmanship and quality of the chased floral detailing is highly typical for the 1833 date, though it is somewhat unusual to find a mourning ring without the standardized mourning characteristics (black or white enameling, lettered band, death-related motifs). The inclusion of Persian turquoise is a popular choice for sentimental rings of the era, for the blue evokes forget-me-not flowers, which symbolizes remembrance and faithful love.
