RARE ANTIQUE VICTORIAN ENGLISH 9K GOLD LEATHER SPIRAL RING GRAND TOUR c1870
A spiral of gold ribbon winds around this extremely rare antique ring dating from the Victorian Grand Tour period. This stunning gold ring has simplicity of design contrasted with detail that gets better the closer you look, along with bright gold contrasted with the dull brown of leather. This wonderful plaited gold ribbon twisted with a tiny sample of leather from an unfortunate animal during a Grand Tour in the Victorian period is held by a solid 9 carat gold cuff. A souvenir of a trip to distant lands before the advent of photography, this kind of jewelry was bought by tourists to commemorate their trip, and worn back home to brag about their worldliness! It’s a lovely quality, suprisingly light and easy to wear piece that’s historic, fascinating and beautiful as well. Size 7.5, not resizeable. It weighs in at just 1.5 grams and is 2 mm wide. It’s in very good condition for its age and ready to wear. What’s more, I offer layaway deals so there’s no need to let any of my listings slip through your fingers – just ask! For security all items are stored in a bank’s safe deposit box and sent fully insured for peace of mind.
