Ummm yeah that would creep me out too. However, my daughter is quite strange and I’d be surprised if she didn’t like it lol.

Aw I bet it was someone’s baby and they had their likeness carved into a ring! It’s like tattoos of people, the person wearing it loves it but it looks kinda creepy to everyone else lol.

another bee on here had a “dingleberry” ring lol, I can’t remember who though! πŸ˜‚

Haha! That’s REALLY REALLY bad… I can’t imagine the person who would spend 10k on a ring that looks like a ghost baby…. Have you seen any of the Victorian era’s “mourning” style jewelry? Gotta love jewelry made with departed loved one’s hair…. 😳 that was a strange era for jewelry indeed….

Well be careful when you do , because you will  find yourself in  a world of  Victorian  mourning customs ,   including  many pictues of dead babies,  children  and others , usually fully dressed up and often posed on chairs etc.

I guess when death was so much more present and likely, esp for infants , attitudes to corpses was very different than the modern sanitised ( esp American if I may say so ) one.

elderbee :  if you really want to read a great article that explains the era beautifully without falling totally down the Victorian mourning custom rabbit hole, check this out by Lang Antiques. They’re a really cool antique jewelry store that knows tons about the history of the pieces they sell as well as the history that inspired a lot of these bizarre (by modern standards) pieces.

The latter part of the article really gets into how Queen Victoria was after the loss of her husband as well as all of the major changes that were happening during the time (lots of industry and invention including photography). It’s super interesting if you’re into that 😊

I think the moonstone baby is so super cute! I would totally wear it! I think antiques like this are very interesting and a carving in moonstone like that is impressive especially for the age of the piece. But the tooth I don’t care for.
