Here is a brief article on Kalmar Antiques’ very own and very beautiful 16 carat rose gold.
The story of how we came about 16 carat gold actually goes back to a lovely young couple who purchased an antique snake ring from us that was made in Birmingham in the late 1800’s in what was hallmarked as 15 carat gold.
Well, it worked on me. My husband offered me a very pretty 18k white-gold diamond and blue-sapphire ring, with a combination of fine filigree and engraving. It was beautiful, surely, but I loved him and so I said yes. It wasnâ€™t long before I was in love with the antique wedding ring and since then, Iâ€™ve been singing the praises of the value, beauty and unique nature of an antique ring.
