This is a so-called memorial ring. From the mid 1700's till the early 1800's the well-to-do would predestinate a certain part of their financial legacy to have these memory-rings made, once they passed away. In their testament they would clearly stipulated who would get such ring. These rings were then worn by their heirs in memory of their beloved deceased. In our days, these rings are sought after by collectors.

On the outside of the shank (bottom part of ring) which is enameled with black and white enamel we can read in gold Gothic letters: "IN MEMORY OF". And on the inside the ring has been hand engraved with: "Mary Ann Edmonds, 06, 26 Jan, 1822 Oct 19".
