The buckle ring is a traditional design that has been around for centuries, and here is one that is beautifully hand engraved and has such a wonderful look combined with a beautiful tactile feel that adds to the charm of the ring when it is on the finger.
Made in 18 carat gold in the early 1900's, the ring measures 10.7mm wide at the centre buckle section to 9.5mm wide at the back and will easily suit a male or female as well as for any finger.
While machine engraving is fine, nothing beats the individual quality of hand engraving that makes it so much more unique.
This ring has a wonderful heft on the finger and can so easily be worn alongside other antique jewellery as well as modern and always look so special.
