Hand crafted from 18ct rose gold and assayed Birmingham in 1904, with full British hallmarks for manufacture by Kinsey Brothers & Patrick, this superb quality ring has exquisitely hand chased ‘Ivy Leaf’ engraving throughout the entire circumference of the ring.
Featuring a full circumference of inter-twinning Ivy which symbolises eternity, fidelity and strong affection such as wedded love and or friendship and would traditionally have been given as a wedding ring.
This wide - 8.4mm - ring has the colour of rich 18ct rose gold with hints of yellow given the deep and finely chased textured background in and around the Ivy and beautifully scolded worked borders.
This ring is hefty, solidly and beautifully made, with crisp detailing, quite incredible for her 119 years of age.
A pleasure to wear, comfortable and finger hugging, this sentimental ring could be the ideal sustainable choice for an alternative wedding ring as she will last another 100 plus years.
