Antique Mourning ring.  Worn to commemorate the dead. They were especially popular in Victorian times, and although they can pretty much be anything, they're usually combinations of gold and onyx and/or porcelain, sometimes painted with urns or graveyard scenes.  Many contain locks of the dead person's hair. Sometimes the hair is just loosely held in an openable chamber in lieu of a jewel, while other times it's woven into a pattern.  Most were engraved with the deceased's name and details.
