Vintage ArtCarved 14K Yellow Gold Band Ring, JR Wood & Sons, Wedding, Bridal, Pinky, Size 5 #c624
This is a marvelous vintage Artcarved gold wedding band ring from JR Wood & Sons! 

The JR Wood & Sons jewelry company was founded in 1850 and manufactured fine gold and platinum jewelry. The maker's mark Artcarved on their jewelry, along with the sideways W for Jr Woods, was in use circa 1940. The name of the company was changed to Artcarved, Inc. in the 1970's and continues making fine bridal and other jewelry today.

This fine vintage Artcarved wedding band is comprised of rich 14K yellow gold. It features a smooth gold finish inside and out with nicely rounded edges. It is quite thick and sturdy and has maintained its shape very well over the decades. It has a beautiful, enduring, classic gold look that never goes out of style. 

The ring measures just a touch under a size 5 on my ring mandrel. It is about 2mm wide and weighs 1.9 grams. It is hallmarked "14K" and signed with a sideways letter "W" for JR Wood & Sons and also signed "ARTCARVED" on the inside of the ring band.

This is such a lovely gold band ring! It has such a timeless appeal and is a true beauty. It would make a marvelous wedding band and could also serve as the "something old" on a bride's wedding day. It would also work nicely as a pinky ring, midi ring or as a stackable ring to pair with other band rings on the hand. The ring is in very good vintage condition. It does have expected surface scratches from previous use and wear, but there is no damage and it has maintained its round shape. (Please note scratches look more prominent in my macro lens photos than they do to the naked eye.) There is a faint horizontal sizing line on one side of the ring and a very small area of patina on the inside of the ring band .If desired, a jeweler could buff and polish the ring to a new shine. It's a superb gold ring to add to your fine jewelry collection!
