This ring is an open edition reproduction of the ring believed to be the one Joseph Smith used to illustrate the eternal nature of man in his "King Follett" discourse in April 1844, shortly before his martyrdom. Joseph was wearing the ring when he was killed in Carthage Jail, and it appears on his hand in several paintings done in his lifetime. Sometime after the Prophet's death, his wife Emma gave the ring to Alexander Hale Smith, one of their sons. Today the ring is privately owned.
This ring is offered in both men's and women's versions. Together they make an attractive wedding or anniversary set.
