Indisputable British hallmarks for the year 1901 authenticates this impressive antique silver buckle ring that hails from the very year that the Victorian era ended.
Made by Pearce & Thompson, a jewellers located in Birmingham's historic jewellery quarter, the ring is crafted in a super comfy D-profile. Heavy gauge, chunky and wide in a larger finger size it provides wonderful finger coverage and with the detailing still crisp it promises years and years of enjoyment to come.
A fantastic piece of antique jewellery and a classic token of love. To the sentimental Victorians buckle rings represented loyalty and eternity and as an amulet they bestowed protection upon the wearer, it isn't surprising then that they were given as a loving gift to someone special!
