A fabulous wide double buckle ring from the Victorian (ca1884) era! Crafted in sterling silver, this ring has a stylish 3-dimensional design. The ring has a classic double buckle motif, and the "belt" is embellished by lovely foliate engraving. A simple, smooth belt loop crosses the width of the design, and the underside of the ring is smoothly polished across the two-belt design. Stamped inside the band is a lion passant mark, an anchor mark indicating its assay in Birmingham, a "k" date letter to note its craft in 1884, an indistinguishable maker's mark, and a very lightly hand-engraved "871". A very wearable everyday piece, this Victorian ring merges effortlessly with modern styles!
Measurements: The ring has a finger size of 8 3/4 but could easily be resized. The band measures 8.2mm wide.
Condition: The ring is in overall excellent condition. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to the sterling silver setting. There is a natural patina on the surface of the silver setting, which is normal for an antique piece and adds further depth to the etched design.
