At Karen Deakin Antiques, we’re longtime admirers of quality English gold rings from the final years of the Victorian era and the beginning of the new century. We buy all that we can find.

Good looks and great value – what’s not to love?

This charming 18-carat example is set with an old mine cut diamond and bears an 1896 Birmingham hallmark and an 1895 registration mark.

The latter signifies that its maker wished to copyright a novel design – possibly here the hand-carved leaves at the shoulders and/or the sweeping diagonal central “banner”.

It’s a low-profile ring that looks pretty on its own or worn as part of a stack. As long as it’s treated with care, it’s perfectly suited for everyday wear.
