1772 Georgian Mourning Ring
The image is composed of sepia ink, as well as tiny bits of hair that make up the cypress branches. White enamel-work around the shank reads “Sarah Smith OB: 17 Nov 1772 AE 23,” shorthand for her date of death, and her age. White enamel was usually reserved for pieces meant to mourn the death of a child. This was likely Sarah’s mother’s ring.
