|Finger Ring with Miniature of |
Adolphus Frederick IV
Presented to Queen Charlotte, 1746
The Royal Collection
In 1746, he returned the favor by presenting Queen Charlotte with this diamond finger ring set with a watercolor on ivory portrait of himself by an unknown German artist. Though he looks quite foppish to modern eyes in his elaborate wig, Adolphus was quite the height of fashion. The Queen loved the ring and wore it frequently. A similar portrait was also set into a matching snuff box.
