Shackles : Contemporary “Hardware” Link Ring in 18ct Gold

♥Sold♥

A contemporary 21st century ring with an unusual and sculptural appearance, the links across the top resemble interlocking D-shackles – items of hardware used to secure chains and ropes. It also bears a similarity to “horsebit” jewellery of the 19th century, made to resemble the hardware used in equestrian pursuits.
