A fabulously retro 1970s hefty gold buckle ring with tons of presence. Bearing full London hallmarks this very wide ring is a versatile size for both him and her and provides fantastic finger coverage. At an impressive weight of 7.8 grams it has a classic domed profile with the decorative buckle, strap and belt hole accents still wonderfully crisp without any rubbing smooth.
Buckle rings are said to represent loyalty and eternity, as an amulet they bestow protection to the wearer so it is no wonder they have been a beloved style of ring for well over a hundred years!
A beautiful English statement ring and almost half a century old, buckle rings look stylish and attractive worn on any finger and they make for a distinctive and symbolic wedding ring.

CONDITION: in very, very good vintage condition with light surface wear and faint scratches in keeping with age, the buckle detailing is still crisp and there are no dents or dings.

We have cleaned and professionally polished this ring so she is perfect to wear or bestow as a gift.
