Ask a question

Buckles are an abiding motif in antique and vintage jewellery, reaching a height of popularity in the late 19th century. Victorians used them to signify enduring, steadfast love.

This handsome ring, clearly hallmarked for 1883, is bigger and better than most. Note that the date mark has been struck twice, both inside and the outside the band. This sometimes happened when a ring was made in two separate parts, as here.

This is a large ring at U or 10 1/4, and is probably best not resized owing to its substantial width.

The diamonds are matched, white and lively. And the well-formed, separately applied buckle and strap add to its appeal.

It would make a wonderful promise ring, antique engagement ring or wedding band.
