I violated my bling-buying ban for this. But come on!

I had a self-imposed ban on buying bling, as I'm saving up for a larger OEC. However, I saw this ring on JbG's Instagram and had to have it. It's a Victorian, hand-painted portrait ring. I simply adore it! Just wanted to share with everyone.

Well, if you insist! :naughty: I bought the ring not even knowing what size it was. Luckily, it fits perfectly. Must have been meant to be. Sorry for the bad lighting in the photos.

So cool. Can't help but think of Mr. Whitcomb (Jane Ausin-Pride and Prejudice) a soldier dressed in his fine 'regimentals'.

What a unique ring! It looks great on your hand!
Awww, thank you! I think the oval shape makes my fingers appear a bit leaner! :lol:

I thought of P & P as well! Although, I'd much rather think of him as Mr. Darcy (and I've named him as such). :love:

I love this. It looks really rich and cool.
The ring looks stunning on your hand. So unique to wear a piece of art and an historic piece on your hand.

Very cool ring, do you know if it there is a story behind the portrait?
I wish I knew more about it! Grace purchased at the Miami Antique Show, and I think she only knows the relative period (Victorian) and that it was hand painted. I want to know who this gentleman is, but I don't even know where to begin my research. :read:

Too funny! I've started re-watching the miniseries since getting this ring! It makes me feel as though I was there. :cheeky:

Me, too! I wonder what kind of fellow he was. I wish I knew, but I bet he was of the confident sort.
