Antique Australian 18ct Yellow Gold Ring By ‘Apex’ Circa 1940

Every popular and sought after Art Deco (or a little later) 18ct original wedding band.
This particular ring is early Australian by iconic and well known ‘Rodd’ who used the name ‘Apex’ from from around the 1919 up until 1948.

Crafted from lush and bright 18ct yellow gold with fine however faded engraved work to the outer edges and centre for the full circumference.

The ring itself is very strong, solid and thick, only the finely etched engraving has faded, the inside of the ring bears a very crisp and clear 18ct and Apex hallmarks.
This lovely shaped ring makes the perfect ‘keeper’ or ‘stacking’ ring, and as an added bonus it is a little bit of early Australian history!

History of G.E. Rodd
‘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’.
