This simple gold and black enamel ring is a circa 1767 English mourning ring that was likely commissioned to commemorate the life of Ann Slade, who died in West Pennard, Somerset, England at the age of 27 on 12 May 1767.

This ring dates from 1728; the absolute height of the memento mori style. It not only features the affectation of the ‘coffin’ shaped crystal, but it encapsulates the skeleton inlaid in black enamel around the band. Further to this, the element of the full skeleton inside the coffin crystal completes the sentiment. There is nowhere on the jewel that death is not represented.
