ID:	1880876 Made from 1649 to the early 1700's broken silver Stuart crystal ring, missing the band. There is a tiny gold chain behind the stone...More on Stuart Crystals: Stuart Crystal refers to a jewelry tradition that commenced in 1649, after the execution of King Charles I of the House of Stuart. Royalists (those loyal to the Stuart monarchy) discreetly wore what has now become known as "Stuart Crystal"- a variety of rings, earrings, and brooches that commemorated the lost monarch. These rare pieces generally consist of cut rock crystal contained within a silver or foil-backed setting, and are characterized by the presence of woven hair (initially belonging to King Charles I himself), gold initials, or even miniature portraits of the King. With the restoration of the Monarchy beginning in 1660, a shift occurred where Stuart crystal was worn more publicly and for more personal reasons, like immortalizing the sentiments of living loved ones, in memory of those of have passed, or as Memento Mori, a reminder of one's own mortality.Click image for larger version.

    That's a very special find and a shame that more people here can't appreciate it. Colonial relics are my favorite and this is something that you just don't see posted. I think I've seen 1 or 2 similar glass paste stone link buttons posted in the ten years that I've been following Tnet. Thanks for sharing!

    Congrats and thanks for sharing it and the great write up on the history of the stones.
    It's always a good day when we learn something new about what was.
