c1800 Hair Mourning Memento Ring Size 11.5 With Crystal Cover Woven Brown hair
Tested by my gold buyer as 9K gold using a Niton XL2 XRF combined with acid test on my last trip down to Wilmington NC. This is from the late 18th century to first quarter 19th century woven hair memento mourning ring. This is sized for a man at 11.5 and is rose gold in color. The original crystal cover for the hair is scratched up making the finely woven hair difficult to see. Silvering (lead solder) at the sizing joint and silvering (lead solder) at the edge underneath the head of the ring according to my gold buyer, the lead was used most likely for repair. When I purchased this, the seller also had this item tested by a 3rd party and it tested as gold, but I don't know the method they used before I bought it from them at the estate sale. Engraved on the underside are 3 letters that look like JGP to my eye, but I cannot say that with certainty. This is a "late" product update, because I frankly thought I had already updated this listing to reflect follow up testing done in Wilmington.
