  • Buyer Notes: This band is in fabulous antique condition, showcasing elegant dual tonality of high karat golds, and a minimalist design that alludes to florals without being overtly effeminate. Strong geometries bring a handsome quality to the pattern, which shows commensurate wear. Evidence of engravings on the north and south faces of the ring allude to its once very ornate original condition. Comparable pieces on the market that are similar in age, design, weight and wear, have replacement values of approximately $1000-1200.

The Story:

Dating to the late Edwardian period, this striking two tone gold wedding band boasts a white gold exterior and a yellow gold interior. The band bears an engraved design of geometricized florals, with concentric blooms that are arrowlike in silhouette and are divided by rectilinear four-petaled flower allusions. This pattern is strong and handsome, charmingly worn by affectionate wear and over a century of history.

The florals that adorn this ring are deeply symbolic and convey a message of enduring love: the back to back “arrow” flowers are actually stylized Foxglove flowers, which are believed to illustrate enchantment, divinity and healing. During the Middle Ages, gardens dedicated to the Virgin Mary were dotted with these blooms, then called “The Virgin’s Gloves”, as they possessed chemical characteristics that could be medicinal to the heart if taken in the correct quantities. As such, Foxgloves are particularly related to the beating heart. 

Furthermore, placed between the pairs of Foxgloves that make up this ring’s pattern, are square representations of Orange Blossom flowers. Orange Blossoms have been used by both men and women in matrimonial ceremonies for thousands of years, and symbolize innocence, purity and fertility, and are said to represent unity within marriage. The Orange Blossom detail was a particularly popular feature in engagement and wedding ring designs dating to around 1900, throughout the 1930s. Together, the Foxgloves and the Orange Blossoms convey a message of heartfelt connection between lovers.

This ring is a loving reminder of partnership, instilled with lifetimes of love stories unknown. It is rich with meaning, and is a quality heirloom that makes for a wonderful stacking band or wedding ring. It is just as wearable and versatile today as it ever was.

By placing an order, you accept and agree to uphold Revival Fine Jewelry's terms, conditions and policies.

Regarding All Purchases: All additional 'prop' jewelry boxes, ring boxes, or any other jewelry items pictured alongside the featured listing are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless explicitly noted in the listing description and/or title. Your order will be carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box and will ship in a discreet outer shipping parcel.

Regarding Sale Purchases: Items purchased while on sale and/or sold at specially discounted rates negotiated and agreed upon by Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated consumer are considered final sale. Sale and discounted items are nonreturnable, nonrefundable and ineligible for layaway.

Regarding Brooches & Pins: Often significantly and curiously undervalued jewelry items, brooches, pins and stick pins are treasured pieces of history in this shop. Accordingly, their pricing is calculated analogous to other fine jewelry, including their symbolic meaning, rarity and historical prestige. Such pieces are typically converted to other forms of jewelry, and are therefore becoming increasingly rare in their original states. Aside from being perfectly wearable as sophisticated lapel ornaments, brooches and pins of all kinds are prime candidates for many kinds of fine jewelry conversions, including rings, earrings, pendants, and charms, if so desired by the consumer post-purchase. Revival Fine Jewelry does not perform conversion projects for customers.

Regarding Storage & Boxes: All specifications, including but not limited to the measurements, age, origins, and material compositions are supplied in good faith as professional estimations constructed using professional grade tools, years of learned and honed skills, educational resources and academic scholarship, and refined research methods. Regardless of our confidence in our descriptions and the photographs deemed viable extensions of these descriptions, we cannot guarantee the definitiveness, faultlessness, or exactitude beyond our knowledge and expertise. Kindly keep in mind that this and all items are sold as-is vintage, antique and estate secondhand wares, and consequently bear conditional wear in matter and operation commensurate with age and use.

Layaway is available for full priced, non-sale items priced $600.00 USD or greater, and items may not be combined to attain price-eligibility. Plans are offered as 3-month/90-day maximum terms.

In exchange for offering interest-free plans, customers agree to abide and uphold the following nonnegotiable terms and conditions:

• A 30% non-refundable deposit is due upfront to reserve the item for layaway and pull it from public sale on all of our shopping platforms. Shipping expenses are added to this first payment unless otherwise requested.

• The remaining 70% balance is divided up into three subsequent monthly payments due on the same day of the following three months. If deliquent, a $20.00 USD late fee is added per day to an overdue payment until paid.

 In the event that a layaway installment is left unpaid for seven (7) days and no communication is received from the designated customer, the layaway plan will be presumed abandoned. While the item will be returned to public sale, all payments made hitherto are still considered final.

Layaway items are promptly boxed and shipped to the designated customer once the final payment successfully processes. Taxes, import and other legal fees are not calculated into the payments, and are the sole responsibility of the customer, whether a domestic US or international buyer. Revival Fine Jewelry is not responsible for calculating, covering or adding such costs into purchase prices.

All layaway payments as well as all items purchased through layaway plans are considered final sale; neither payments nor items may be refunded, transferred, exchanged or returned. Revival Fine Jewelry does not issue store credit.

Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to cancel any layaway plan at any point for any reason if fraudulant activity is suspected. In this event, the designated customer will be notified prior to the intended cancellation of their plan.
