Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Buckle Ring, Chased, Engraved, Wide Band, 3D, Birmingham, Dated 1887, Size 7, Beautiful! #b923
I present today this beautiful Victorian sterling silver buckle ring!

This marvelous ring features a buckle motif that was quite common during Victorian times. The buckle symbolized strength, self-defense, and protection and showed up in rings, bracelets and other pieces of jewelry worn by the highly superstitious Victorians.

This particular buckle ring is comprised of fine sterling silver and features a three-dimensional buckle on the face of the ring. The band has beautifully chased designs that wrap around and through the buckle, simulating the belt. The ring has a wide band and it makes quite a statement on the hand. It is simply superb!

The ring measures about a size 7 and it weighs 3.0 grams. The width of the buckle is 1/2 inch and the rest of the band measures 5/16 inch wide. It is has a full set of British hallmarks on the inside of the band which includes a lowercase letter "n" for the year 1887, a sideways anchor symbol for Birmingham and a Lion symbol for Sterling Silver. There is also a maker's mark of "P&T" inside the band, which I believe is for Pearce & Thompson.

I love the chased designs, the history, and symbolism of this gorgeous ring! Its style is still relevant today and can easily mix with contemporary silver jewelry. It's a wonderful piece for collectors of fine antique jewelry. The ring is in excellent antique condition and ready to wear or to be gifted!
