Fully Hallmarked Antique Eternity Band c. 1882
British hallmarking dates back to the 14th century and continues to be in use today. The marks typically refer to the purity of metal content, town or country mark, maker, date and the like. Nevertheless, many items are not marked if the actual process of hallmarking would literally cause damage to a delicate piece.
In contrast, this particular piece of jewelry has a full set of hallmarks indicating the maker’s mark, date and place of manufacture. Substantial in presence and weight, this sterling silver ring is perfect for wear as an eternity band or a wedding ring. A pattern of botanical and scroll motifs has been deeply etched into the entire surface of the ring. Lovely leaf and foliate designs shape shift with scrolling curves. Handsome and august on the hand.
Measurements: 1/4 of an inch (0.7 cm) in length north to south on the hand. Weight of 5.7 grams (3.6 dwt).
Ring Size: US 10-1/4 (UK U-1/2; Int. Dia. 20; Euro 62.5; Japan 21) and can be sized down with inserts with some pattern loss; it is not recommended to size up. Please contact us for additional details. This ring will fit a bit tighter due to its width. Ring sizing information.
Hallmarks: Full set of English hallmarks for Birmingham, date letter representing 1882 and a maker's mark of “S.G.”.
Condition: Very good; evidence of an old resizing but perfectly matched with pattern is visible with magnification.
