Georgian Gage D’ Amitie Ring From The Book Gedenke Mein
Written by the Collector Gisela Zick, "Gedenke Mein - Freundschafts und Memorialschmuck 1770 -1870" published by Harenberg Kommunikation in 1980.
Gisela Zick was born in 1944 and has written a book about Ceramics as well as directing five movies from 1999 - 2018. She was a prolific collector of mourning jewelry which she finally sold in auction in 2018.
This ring is modelled in 14 carat gold, and although the book describes it as blue enamel it actually appears to be blue glass from behind, with a pale blue enamel and white oval plaque with gold swags and the lettering ' Gage D'Amitie' covered by domed glass.
face measures 26mm x 15mm
weight - 6.5g
The ring is a size 6.5 and can be sized.
The shank must be a replacement but is in the original condition when aquired from Gisela Zick
