Gents Antique Edwardian Buckle Ring

This is a lovely ring with a lot going for it. It's well made in 15ct yellow gold and is set with a tiny Gipsy Set diamond.

The Buckle, Belt and Garter feature prolifically in Victorian Symbolism used in Jewellery and this was carried over into the Edwardian period.
Like the Snake/ Serpent, the buckle or belt represents eternity, fidelity / loyalty, strength and protection. The symbolism being that it curves around and threads back through creating an eternal loop.

Buckle, belt, garter and serpent rings were popular love tokens and also used in memorial jewellery to symbolise being entwined together for eternity, so this would make a fabulous wedding band for a man or a pinkie ring for an anniversary gift.

I love the 15ct gold mark - This standard of gold was introduced in 1854 (along with 12 & 9ct) and was discontinued in1932 (along with 12ct) and a new standard of 14ct was substituted. So if you have a piece marked 15ct you know it was made between those two dates.

This ring is hallmarked for Birmingham but the date letter is unreadable, however, it dates to around 1900 -1915 and there is also an engraved inscription in the inside: EH from SH in script

Size: height of the band is 5.78mm not including the buckle.
