18kt Gold Forget-Me-Not Ring, Turquoise and a Pearl c1850

  • Product Info

    An antique gold Pensee ring, beautifully designed and made.  The 18kt yellow gold is in high, rich color.  The ring's shoulders are  chased, exquisitely pretty without overstepping the mark.  The face of the ring is a pansy with petals of desirable Persian turquoise cabochons.  Mounted center is a single tiny pearl with perfect skin. There is evidence of an early resizing to the ring, which is American ring size 8, UK ring size P.

    The Pensee ring is one of the most collectible items in the antique jewelry category.  It is not a mourning piece, but a sentimental one, carrying with it a message of strong love.  The ring's face design is a pansy, which derives its name from the French word pensee, meaning thought, remembrance.  Given to a loved one ~ a gentleman to his fiancee, a groom to his bride, a mother to her daughter ~  this ring carried this message: "When this you see, remember me."  So meaningful, so beautiful, lovely quality & very  collectible. Completely wearable, too!   c1850-75. Your ring will be delivered to you in a gift box.
