Antique Georgian Memorial Ring belonging to Anthony Sargeant


Tony bought this antique memorial ring today at Fellows Auction House in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham, England. It has beautifully carved gold shoulders with a black enamel face with initials as shown in the next post (though as often is the case with such script it is difficult to decipher – anybody who can please let me know what you think the initials are). On the inside of the ring it is incised to read, Born 15 May 1774 Died 29 Jan. 1819
