Edwardian Overlay Wedding Band
with Crosses & Xs, in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
An unusual antique eternity band, hand-fabricated in 18k gold, whose decor is a pattern of crosses and Xs. This band is made in two colors (rose and yellow), using overlay technique— one sheet of gold is pierced with a small saw; that sheet is laid atop another and they are sweated together. The face of this band is rose gold, and the recessed areas are yellow. This band is very cool and we have not seen another like it from this period. The crosses and Xs motif reminds us of patterns in traditional Navajo weaving. This is inscribed, in period script: Rewl (?) 21-06-02. It is marked 18k.
