Vintage Solid 14kt Gold Buckle Ring
A pretty stacking ring made from antique elements. The buckle part of the ring is antique, c1910s, and is made from 14kt gold. It would probably have been used on a ribbon as a little decorative element. A 9kt gold shank has been added to the buckle to create a ring that would stack beautifully with others or could be worn alone as a dainty gold ring. During the Victorian period, the buckle motif was popular as a symbol of love tied together as one. A wonderful connotation for any piece.
