A simple old fashioned monogrammed ring in a southern octagon font. for a man or woman, with the letter "J" appearing in the middle. We think it reads EJF, with the center "J" referring to the surname (or last name). The other 2 letters could refer to the first names of a couple, or could be a first and middle name. This is a very nice monogrammed enamel signet ring with great enamel flourishes and in great condition, US size 8.

Multi-stone Victorian 15K ring with 4 natural pearls accenting the 3 rubies and 6 emeralds.

The rediscovery of the ruins of Pompeii in the mid 18th century revived an immense classical revival with renewed interest in Roman, Greek and Egyptian archeological motifs. There were two Egyptian revivals over the course of the nineteenth century, during which Egyptian classical forms were all the rage throughout Europe and somewhat later in England. Our earrings date from the second revival later in the century. We love these earrings for their classical elements which include concentric c...

Though the hallmarks show it to be of the Victorian era, this memorial band was made in the Regency style of the earlier part of the century. It is hallmarked for Birmingham, 1863. The words IN MEMORY OF are carved to the outside of the band along with raised religious and mourning imagery including Maltese crosses and fallen leaves. The gold-work is heavily chased. This ring was probably made as an advance order but never inscribed. Possibly it sat in some goldsmith's vault for years, which c...

Poesy rings were popular in England and France during the 16th through the 17th centuries as lover's gifts. The quotations were often from courtship stories and are usually inscribed on the inner surface of the ring as is the case in this one. This ring amusingly reads "A virtuous Wife Preferreth Life". We imagine that in the 17th century, a woman was indeed better off being virtuous! We think this could make a more unusual and unique wedding band than a gold band. As all gold jewelry in England...

Rendez Vous de chasse roughly translates to "appointment for the hunt". The hunting dog stands faithfully to one side along with the horn, and rifle & hunting pouch, also known as a bullet pouch, with hip flask on other side. All the essentials ne...
