This is an easy to wear and stylish 18ct antique yellow gold ring made in 1902 by Edward Vaughton at his Warstone Lane workshop in the jewellery quarter of Birmingham, England.
It is in the style of a “Keeper ring”. The tradition of giving a keeper ring is said to have represented the idea that the receiver was worth “keeping.” The “You are a keeper” sentiment attached to these rings makes them a popular choice today as a unique wedding ring, engagement ring, eternity ring, and even an anniversary band.
This particular ring is composed of crossing gold bands with points across the face of the ring which could be set with small seed pearls if desired. The band is fully hallmarked for Chester and 18ct gold. It is date marked 1902 and bears the 'EV' makers mark for Edward Vaughton.
Size: Q 1/2 (UK) / 8.5 (US)
ABOUT OUR JEWELLERY
This piece has been specifically selected by us, for you. We choose vintage and antique items which we think are beautiful, elegant and classic at a range of price points between £30 and £3,000.
Generally, this means we only ever have one of each piece. We don’t select pieces which are “mass market” but rather items which are more individual. This means that once an item has been purchased, it really has gone.
Each piece comes in an attractive jewellery presentation box.
