Antique Victorian 18-carat yellow gold knot ring, hallmarked Birmingham 1900
1 in stock
Lovers’ knots make appealing rings. Their interwoven elements are usually widest mid-finger then taper at the sides, as in this 18-carat gold example from 1900.
The shape is pleasing on a wide finger. As this one is a large size – U, or 10 1/4 – I’m hoping that someone who normally finds Victorian rings too small will find that this one fits them, or is reasonably close to doing so. (I do not charge anything for sizing.)
One strand of the knot is plain, the other engraved, emphasising two parts becoming one. The idea was that the harder the ends are pulled apart the closer the knot becomes.
Lovers’ knots reached a height of popularity in late Victorian and Edwardian times. Many examples still survive in the form of rings, bracelets, brooches and chains.
A whole collection of antique jewellery could be based on this one lovely motif.
