Antique 18ct rose gold antique engagement ring by George Addis.
This antique 18ct rose gold antique engagement ring is so special for two reasons. Firstly it was made in rose gold. Most engagement rings are set in yellow or white gold or platinum. Rose gold is made by the addition of copper when it is being alloyed resulting in a lovely warm colour. This engagement ring is made in 18ct rose gold which has a softer rose tone than 9ct rose gold. The reason being, the higher in carat, the more yellow the gold is resulting in the lovely rose colour seen in this ring. And secondly this ring was made by the Australian jewellery George Addis. George Addis was born in Melbourne in 1864 and moved to Tasmania where he worked as a jeweller from 1890 trading as a jeweller and watchmaker. Moving later to Kalgoorlie, he traded as a jeweller until 1934. Making a name now as a maker of fine quality Australian pieces, George Addis jewellery has become highly sought after.
