Antique Australian 18ct Yellow Gold ‘Cherry Blossom’ Band by ‘Apex’ Circa 1930’s

The inside of the gold band is stamped with ‘Apex 18ct’.  Apex was the name used by G.E. Rodd.

George Rodd established his workshop in 1919 and began making trophies and medallions soon expanding into cutlery and jewellery.

By the 1930's Rodd was the leading manufacturer of jewellery in Australia. He used the trade name Apex until the firm became a limited company in 1948 when the name changed to Rodd.

This piece would date to the 1930’s’.
This glorious little ring was modelled in the 1930’s from very bright and lush 18ct yellow gold and almost as good as new.

Featuring Cherry Blossoms alternating with a cross-hatched cross design encompassing the full circumference, symbolising ‘a time of renewal, spring, rebirth and grace’.

Stamped clearly with 18ct and ‘Apex’,  incredibly rare and hard to find these amazing rings at all let alone in this condition.

What a lovely antique heirloom piece this would make for a sustainable choice for a wedding or eternity band.
