The ring is a wonderful example of Georgian era memorial jewelry with rich floral and scrolled details to the side shoulders. The pearls border a lock of hair that is finely braided in a protected oval glass mount. Black enamel borders the pearls. The inner band is engraved "John Wilson ob 3Aug 1825 50".
