Victorian Diamond Buckle Ring, Circa 1897
ABOUT THIS RING
Although Queen Victoria wore a buckle ring to represent her membership to the Order of the Garter, an order of chivalry created by King Edward III in 1348, the style became popular with regular citizens and took on a different and sentimental meaning, symbolizing love and unbreakable bonds. This lovely version is hand fabricated in lustrous 18K gold, rimmed with a coin-edged texture, and twinkles with a tiny single-cut diamond. Pretty sweet! From England, 1897. Currently ring size 5 1/4.
