General Information:

  • US Size: 6.25
  • Precious Metal Weight: 2.71 dwt
  • Precious Metal Material: 18k white gold
  • Dimensions: 2.72 mm north to south ring face (width); ~ 1.50 mm rise from the finger (depth)
  • Weight: A comfortable 2.35 grams
  • Markings: 18K[k?] The second letter is mostly polished away from years of wear, so its exact identification and meaning is unknown.
  • Era: The style, cut, finish and fabrication allude to a conservatively estimated date of around 1900 to the 1910s. Its design is not machine-pressed as there are very, very slight variances that exhibit its handworked make, also showing the skill and commitment of an artisan over 110+ years ago. 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 is exceptional as a relic of the Edwardian period. It simultaneously expresses the organicism, whimsy and elegance of the 1900s as well as the striking geometries and patterns of the Art Deco movement. This piece is rare for a number of reasons, all of which make it a fabulous find and a collector’s dream: it is a hand-engraved eternity style ring, it is a sought after mid-range/average finger size, and it boasts a very nice patina to the white gold that feels almost satin in finish. It is in superb, crisp condition for its age, and finally, although it appears Art Deco, it notably predates rings of this kind which boomed in popularity about 20 years after this ring was made. Though simple and unassuming, this band is extremely special amongst antique jewels.

The Story:

A late Edwardian creation, this crisp engraved band is in the eternity style, with a high relief floral pattern. This ring is masterfully fabricated in 18k white gold, beautifully patinaed earned over the last century or so. For its age, it is in very clean, articulated condition, with handcrafted elements adorning virtually every exterior surface.

Between the turn of the century and the end of the Deco period, deeply symbolic jewelry rose to popularity, bestowing rich meaning in every detail. Four petaled Evening Primrose blooms circle the band, which are representative of young and eternal love, favored memory and profound affection. Oftentimes, similar stylized florals are meant to be orange blossoms, also a common choice in jewelry but most usually of pieces dating to the Deco years. Orange blossoms have long been beloved in matrimonial accessories, as it is a symbol of innocence.

Furthermore, horizontal rectangular forms space the flowers with fortifying strength, as if buttressing the tenderness of the sweet blossoms. Along the top and bottom edges, leafy festoons punctuate the ring, and hearken to the historic practice of wreathing one in garlands to recognize victory and honored distinction. Such designs are also meant to represent eternal life and prosperity. Given such expressive detailing, one is compelled to see this band as conveying a message so much deeper than mere beauty.

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.

• 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.
