16th century ring. Sometimes known as the Darnley Ring. It is engraved with the initials 'MH' and true lover's knot. The gold original was thought to be the betrothal ring of Mary Queen of Scots and Lord Darnley, because the engraving inside shows a crowned shield of arms, a lion rampant and 'Henri Darnley 1565'. This inscription is now thought to be an early 19th century addition. Victoria and Albert Museum, London. This 18 carat gold ring will be sized in my Studio at no extra charge.
