Antique Australian 18ct Gold And Enamel Ring By ‘Wendts’ Circa 1890

Please note boxes are for display only unless otherwise stated


A little mystery ring for sure but we believe this one is manufactured by Australian jeweller Jochim Matthias Wendt (1854-?).

Crafted from 18ct yellow gold and finely inlaid in ornate fashion with black enamel to a solidly crafted slightly tapering flat band.

Indicative of the Victorian era, beautifully crafted, and stamped with the Australian ’18ct’ style of stamp along with the makers marks ‘JMW’ which given extensive research we have eliminated all bar Jochim Wendt.

This rare little ring, regardless of maker, is one for the serious collector of unusual antique jewellery.


5.95mm tapering to 4.15mm

5.35 Grams

‘JMW’ for Jochim Matthias Wendt
N or 17.1mm diameter US 6 3/4

Very very good antique condition.  Enamel is is very good condition with only very minimal surface wear seen only under loupe magnification.
No thinning to gold throughout, hallmarks clear and crisp.  Highly unusual collectible ring.
