Antique 18ct Yellow Gold Floral Pattern Buckle Ring ‘Chester’ 1896

*Please note boxes are for display only unless otherwise stated*

Bright, rich and buttery are oft used words to describe gold but in this rings case they don’t even do it justice!

The colour is so rich almost appearing as perhaps 22ct in hue this collectible ring in its own right (given its assay at the long closed Chester assay office) and also its meaningful significance as buckle rings symbolise a binding love between the giver and the wearer of the ring.

An extra added touch to this already beautiful ring its its floral chased pattern of both Ivy leaves and Daisies? Representing love, eternity and fidelity and the daisies innocent and purity.

A nice width, not to wide, at 7mm (9.23 at the widest part of the buckle) this ring is one of those that seemingly ‘melts’ on to the finger and is very comfortable to wear.
Crafted by Edward Vaughton -  88 Vyse St (formerly of Warstone Lane) in 1896 and hallmarked beautifully and clearly as such.
