Mourning jewellery is often handed down through the generations and the story of whom it commemorates can be lost along the years. There are some however which are finely detailed to ensure that the memory of a loved one never fades. Lot 316 in The Jewellery Auction on December 18 is a mourning ring which holds a sad tale not only for the original wearer but for the nation.

The battle of the Somme was one of the most tragic that took place in WWI and was fought between 1 July and 18 November 1916. Over 100 years later, we are reminded that out of the three million honourable men that fought in the battle, over one million of them were killed or wounded. By the end of the first day, there were 57,470 casualties for Britain alone and this enamelled mourning ring serves as a touching reminder to honour just one of them.
The black enamelled ring with hinged shoulders would have originally opened to reveal space for hairwork underneath, is engraved ‘D.McL, Wounded & Missing, Somme, 1/7/16.’ This ring is a poignant tribute to a local soldier from Govanhill, Donald J McLagan, who went to war leaving his pregnant wife at home and didn’t return home. The current vendor, the soldier’s grandson, was unaware of the history of the ring until bringing it to McTear’s.

Estimated at only £50–£80, you could own a piece of history and ensure that the story of a local hero is told for generations to come.

Sadly Kate’s husband passed away 18 months ago. She decided to make a widows ring to wear in place of her wedding and engagement rings. This wasn’t the design Kate had in mind but she created something unique and beautiful. I love how organic this piece is and the special meaning behind it. #podjewellery #widowsjewellery #mourningjewellery #lostwaxringcarvingworkshop #kyneton #macedonranges #jewellerymaking #learntomakejewellery #sterlingsilver #jewelleryworkshops #jewelleryclasses

Born in Edinburgh in 1827 this beautiful #mourningring is nearly 200 years old 🖤🖤🖤 #mourningjewelry #19thcentury #1800s #artofmourning #prettydifferentshop

I recently purchased a small gold ring with a wire crown over hair under a low-domed rock crystal. As the ring was sold with no attribution, I was delighted when I saw the back under the bezel with the initials CR and above that, 1st. This could be for none other than King Charles I. How do I know this? CR stands for Carolus Rex- Latin for King Charles. And the style of the crown, as shown in heraldry is the crown of a king. Is the hair that of Charles I? Well, about that I don’t know. Scroll through to see a close-up of the front. When I say the ring is small, it really is- it’s a US size 2 ½ and fits my pinkie. I’ve also shown a few examples of other Charles I pieces with the initials CR: the inside of a silver locket from @mhs1791 and the underside of an enameled ring from the @britishmuseum . Last image is a triple portrait of Charles I by Anthony Van Dyck. #mourningring #mourning #loyalist #kingcharlesthefirst #charlesi #themartyrking #17thcentury #stuartera #memorialring #mourningjewelry #mourningjewellery #jewelryhistory #jewelleryhistory #englishmonarchy #royalty #afortunatefind

Beautiful things picked up at local antiques fair last weekend, all mourning jewellery. The large hair panel would have been part of a larger brooch, but I quite like it as it is!
And the foil backed almandine garnet and seed pearl brooch, circa 1840, is just amazing ❤️
All soon to appear on Etsy, wrenandrust.etsy.com

#wearhistory for all of us romantics. “Je L’ayme Venant De Vous” is the statement written upon the band of the ring, roughly translating from archaic French as “I love that it came from you”. The ring’s very meaning is the very statement of a love token. A gift given with the intent of love, showing proprietary, fidelity and affection towards a loved one and actually indicating that the ring itself is a factor of their love.

So, Cincinnati is hands down the weirdest place I've ever been in my life. Follow me on Patreon to watch my full vlog recounting my journey and to learn about the hair jewelry I found! In the meantime, please enjoy this painting of a family from the Cincinnati Art Museum. The woman is holding a portrait miniature of her deceased husband and is wearing a mourning ring with matching earrings probably containing hair.

I found a Victorian 9ct Gold mourning pendant with a beautiful black enamel wreath and a banded agate cabochon.
The pendant has a diameter of 26mm and a drop of approximately 38mm.
It is in great condition but will benefit from a careful clean (we will take care of this when it arrives in Brisbane). $800. #ifoundthisoldthing #michaelallenantiques #brisbaneantiques #antiquejewellery #brisbanejewellery #mourningjewellery #bandedagatependant
