Story

Imagine a day in 1888…a day one hundred and twenty-six years ago…a day in Birmingham, England…in the shop of a goldsmith with the initials “AMB”. It was on that day in that year that this 18k yellow gold wedding band eternity ring was created. Crafted with care and precision, the band is deeply textured and impressed all the way around with a charming pattern of flowers and leaves – often used symbolically to represent the fecundity of nature and bounty in our lives.

Now imagine how in our disposable society an object so small and perhaps easily overlooked has survived, let alone still almost looks as it did the day it was made. The idea alone stops us in our tracks only to contemplate what is truly important in life. Medium in width, with a fine weight, it awaits its next lifetime of adventure, triumphs, challenges and relationships.

Date: 1888.
