  • Unique find! Only 1 available.

  • Shopping pre-owned is choosing sustainable luxury
  • One-of-a-kind item exclusively curated for you
  • Ships with full insurance + signature confirmation

General Information:

  • US Size: Right between a 7.00 and 7.25 on the mandrel, and cannot be resized
  • Precious Metal Weight: 7.25 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: Procured and stamped as 14k yellow gold, but the shop tester hovers around 65.8% gold content, which is roughly 16k gold
  • Dimensions: 6.6 mm north to south ring face (width); ~ 3.3 mm rise from the finger (depth)
  • Weight: a super massive and highly desirable 11.28 grams
  • Markings: 14K
  • Era: The style, cut, finish and fabrication allude to a conservatively estimated date of around the 1970s, though it could very well date to anywhere between the 1960s and the 2000s. Without knowing an exact provenance, we cannot ascertain a more precise date range beyond what our years of collecting, dealing, learning and refining our expertise enables us to determine.
  • Buyer Notes: This ring is one of a kind, with no other exact comparables on the market at the time of listing. For a womenโ€™s ring, it is notably heavy and has a thickness (depth/rise from the finger) that truly sets it apart. And yet, it is buttery smooth and very comfortable to wear, a perfect stacking ring that is also glorious for lone wear. The details are fully articulated, and realistic, making it an exquisite example of handwoven gold. The band is pre-loved, and shows surface wear that is commensurate with its age and affectionate use, which should be very much expected of pieces like this. Please note that some areas where the strands meet at the very centerline of the braid exhibit ever so slight wearing of the rich gold color of the metal, resulting in certain portions appearing almost like warm white gold where the strands lock. This characteristic is not observable in most lights and certainly not noticeable unless pointed out. It also does not change or alter the gold content that comprises the braid itself. As such, prospective buyers please make sure to browse all photographs before purchasing, as photos are considered extensions of the written description. 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.

The Story:

Reminiscent of the timeless interlocked motifs of Celtic wedding bands, this ring features a very well crafted three-dimensional eternity style braid. This braid is made up of a trinity of articulated strands that appear to have been very meticulously woven into one another to create the tactile plaiting that makes this ring stand out amongst the sea of gold bands.

Aside from beauty, this ring is remarkably hefty, its weight a desirable attribute indeed, and one which reminds the wearer of its presence in the very best way. The heft of this ring is partially due to an interior band that allows the ring to slide on and be enjoyed in maximum comfort. This innermost band is visible from the top and bottom views of the ring, from which angle the bulbousness of the dimensional braid may also be noted. The ring has a chunky depth, causing its profile to be more prominent than most bands, while also adding to the luxurious weight of the piece.

Such plaiting is illustrative of the security of marriage and partnership, and the unity that comes with a relationship centered by unchangeable sacred truths. Traditionally, one strand represents one lover, a second strand their partner, and the third strand symbolizes the Divine, togethering conveying a message of the unyielding strength of a spiritual union. Echoing this notion, the number three is recognized across countless cultures and eras as epitomized perfection, especially in metaphysical terms.

Perhaps the most recognized display of this is in the Holy Trinity, wherein God is a compassionate father who unconditionally accepts us, a devoted son and friend who relentlessly chases after our hearts, and a passionate spirit who whispers in lovingkindness to redirect our focus back to the truth. Another analogy of the braid may be elicited from the axiom that a cord of three strands is not easily broken. However it is interpreted, the message of fortitude, favor and affection are clear. This ring proudly reminds the wearer of all these, while offering just as much punch in its striking appearance.

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

General Information: All additional jewelry boxes, ring boxes, and other jewelry items pictured alongside a featured listing are considered props, are for photographic and display purposes only and are not included in the transaction unless otherwise noted. Items do not come with physical documentation, appraisals, or certifications, unless explicitly stated in the item description and/or title. While jewelry is inspected upon procurement by the shop as well as prior to shipment, Revival Fine Jewelry cannot guarantee a warranty once items leave our inventory, given the delicate and individual nature of secondhand articles and the unaccountability of buyer handling post-purchase.

Shipping: All orders are carefully packed within a branded Revival Fine Jewelry gift box, secured with recycled materials when possible, and shipped within a discreet outer shipping parcel. All orders ship with tracking, insurance and signature confirmation. Shipping options are presented at checkout. Per law and inegrity, international orders are always marked as commodity imports and customers are responsible for any and all customs expenses, VAT taxes and import fees, as well as any clearance costs legally dictated by their respective destination countries. These expenses are not calculated into the pricing structure, and returns based on import costs will not be permitted.

Returns: While Revival Fine Jewelry aims to provide a smooth experience from start to finish, customers are encouraged to reach out regarding any issue or dissatisfaction, so that we may work together toward a resolution. If a return is desired, the shop must be notified of an intention to return withinย 3 daysย of confirmed delivery, and item(s) must be shipped back to the shop withinย 7 daysย of confirmed delivery. All materials (gift box, inserts, cards) must be returned with the item(s). Returns declared after the 3 day window and/or postmarked after 7 days of receipt will neither be accepted nor refunded. Customers are responsible for generating an insured return shipping label (international customers included) and relaying the tracking information to Revival Fine Jewelry. Returns that do not include full insurance and/or tracking, and are damaged or lost in transit, will not be refunded. If a return is accepted, customers will be refunded less the original cost of shipping, handling and insurance, the expense of any damages incurred, and a 10% restocking fee (of the original purchase price). All sale items, items altered or resized by the buyer post-purchase, and all storage/ boxes are considered final sale and are ineligible for a return or refund.

Sale Terms: Sale prices are only valid within the prescribed sale window, unless otherwise stated by Revival Fine Jewelry or agreed upon between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer. To maintain business sustainability and general fairness, individual customers are not entitled to exclusive notification of, or owed access to, store sales antecedently. Orders processed prior to a promotion or sale, items placed on layaway prior to a sale, and payments paid through layaway prior to a sale will not be retroactively adjusted to reflect sale pricing or terms.

Specially Negotiated Deals: Items purchased at specially negotiated discounts, deals or prices through any platform between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer are considered final sale, including rates arranged and agreed upon via Facebook, Instagram, email or any other method. Closing deals at special rates reflects a desire by both parties to reach an expeditious and absolute sale. The intention of specially negotiated discounts, deals or sale prices through any platform between Revival Fine Jewelry and a designated customer, is to eliminate extra expenses and/or use of time and resources to formally list or re-list items per their specific and inherent value-determining qualities, as well as avoid unseen overhead business costs, stocking obligations, and all other disclosed or undisclosed monetary and nonmonetary expenditures.

Pricing: Revival Fine Jewelry reserves the right to decrease, increase, alter and modify inventory pricing to meet market rarity, demand or value; to offset platform, transaction or seller's fees; to adapt to economic inflation and fluctuation; and to defray specific business expenses. Pricing is the sole discretion of every small business.

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.
