Sally Inman’s Mourning Ring

As a symbol of her family’s grief, a gold mourning ring  was crafted featuring fifteen garnets that encircle strands of Inman’s hair. Join Philippe Halbert, interim curator of American decorative arts, on the 250th anniversary of Inman’s death. He reveals the story of her passing and examines the ring that has preserved her memory for two and a half centuries and was recently acquired by the Wadsworth.
