Victorian Sterling/Gilt "Faith, Hope + Charity" Ring
A lovely ring from the Victorian (ca1880s) era! Crafted in sterling silver, this sentimental piece displays a gilded design at the center of a heavily carved band. The rosy gold round centerpiece features three individual symbols which come together to form the Faith, Hope, and Charity motif. The cross represents faith, the anchor represents hope, and the heart represents charity (love). The trio stack in a raised manner atop a textured background, encircled by a sterling bezel frame. The band has a foliate motif which carries the entire length of the ring and "KM" hallmark and "925" are stamped along the inside shank with an engraved "JAMA" and "K02B". This ring would be a very special gift for someone who encompasses all three qualities!
Measurements: The ring fits a finger size 7 but could be resized. The central design, including the silver bezel frame, measures approximately 5/16" in diameter and the band measures slightly more than 1/8" wide.
Condition: The ring is in overall excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no serious damage to the sterling and gilded setting.
