Story

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.

Date: 1882.
