Mourning Ring in Custom Color Enamel - Gold
A Modern Day Mourning Ring
The second piece in our Memoir Jewelry line, this handmade ring has gorgeous glass enamel on gold, and contains the tiny words "There Is A Light that Never Goes Out." Commemorate a loss in your life with something subtle you can wear every day.
My Emotional (and True) Story Behind This Ring
Based on my own life story, this ring symbolizes the loss of my sister Donna. Donna was vibrant and beautiful, and my best friend. She was also a complete anglophile, obsessed with anything British or that had to do with the artist Morrissey or his band The Smiths.
"There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" is a Smiths' song title, and the song itself speaks of loss and of love. I walked into that song at my wedding, and now I wear this ring between my engagement ring and wedding band.
How To Wear This Ring
This piece is dainty, measuring 2mm wide - See the photo where I stacked it with my wedding band to give you an idea of size.
This piece can be worn on its own as a subtle and dainty ring, or, it also looks wonderful stacked, as shown in the pictures. It could even be used as an alternative wedding band.
