Modelled as a ‘Keeper’ ring which is a style dating back to as early as the 1700’s. Gaining popularity in the Victorian era these rings were given as a pre-betrothal ring with the sweet sentiment of ‘You’re a Keeper!’. Usually given one year before the official engagement date.
Their sentimental value makes them a popular choice today was they were hundreds of years ago, gifted as wedding rings, eternity rings and perhaps an alternative engagement ring.
A particularly weighty example featuring braided gold wire work with two rows of gold pommels in rich high carat yellow gold. Dating to the late Edwardian era, this piece is immaculate for its 116 years, a testament to the skilled artisan jewellers of the time.
A terrific gift for a special someone or perhaps a personal treat this festive season!
