Gorgeous! It’s so delicate and pretty.

My e-ring’s actually circa 1920s, but the jeweller said the stones were probably Victorian and were reset later. I love that it’s so old, and like yours it has imperfections — the stones are slightly different sizes, and there are tiny nicks on the band (it’s 18kt gold so quite soft). It’s an unusual style now, but fairly common at the time, I believe.

@LadyWhiskey:  welcome and that’s a beauty!  

@hobbitsvselves:  And @Glasgowbound:  these are gorgeous! 

My ring is a family heirloom that belonged to my FI’s grandmother so around 1902.

@LadyWhiskey:  Hi, my e-ring dates from about 1900.  Like yours, mine is not perfect, but in a way that’s part of it’s charm.  I too like the idea that someone’s ring is being loved again.  Mine is a cushion cut sapphire surrounded by old brilliant cut diamonds with 2 tapered baguette diamonds on each side πŸ™‚

Oh my goodness, I love all of these antique rings!  They’re gorgeous!

My Fiance tried to find me an antique ring, but didn’t think I’d like any of the ones he found.  At least he tried πŸ™‚  I’m going to see if I can find an antique-looking band for my wedding band instead.
