Victorian Era Love Knot Wide Band Ring in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A striking Victorian-era wide band ring, modeled in 18k rosy yellow gold, whose face is a pair of sailor’s reef knots, laid one atop the other. These lovely, sinuous knots are each “tied” using pairs of gold wires, and these wires come together in a stack of four to form the ring shank. They are decoratively bound, with vertical straps, at the ring’s shoulders. Knot motifs from this era symbolized loyalty, fidelity, and the strength of a bond. This ring is fully hallmarked for Sheffield, and the year 1855.
US 6. This ring should not be resized.
Ring face measures approx 11.2 mm; shank measures approx 6.3 mm, where it's bound at the shoulder, and approx 4.8 mm at the base.
