Tudor and Elizabethan rings from National Portrait Gallery

Some Tudor and Elizabethan era rings in a portrait from the National Portrait Gallery, for Guy Fawkes (bonfire day).

"ER RING" The ring was removed from Elizabeth I’s finger after her death on March 24th 1603. It is mother-of-pearl, the band set with rubies. The ‘E’ has diamonds set over a blue enamel ‘R’. A pearl is also clearly visible. This ring's stunning façade hides a secret – the head is hinged and within it lie two miniature enamel portraits, one of Elizabeth c. 1575 and one of an unnamed woman wearing a costume of Henry VIII’s reign. It is thought that she is Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth's mother.

Queen Elizabeth I’s locket ring, taken from her hand at her death. ER (Elizabeth Regina) in diamonds and blue enamel on outside; inside, a portrait of herself and her mother, Anne Boleyn, who was executed when Elizabeth was two years old.

George III (portrait by Alan Ramsay, 1762) - King of England 1760-1820 In the later part of his life, George III suffered from recurrent, and eventually permanent, mental illness (possibly from the blood disease porphyria). After a final relapse in 1810, a regency was established, and his eldest son, George, Prince of Wales, ruled as Prince Regent. On George III's death, the Prince Regent succeeded his father as George IV.
