The Practical Romantic : Victorian Wide Rope Ring in 9ct Gold

AU$350.00

In the days before locomotives and automobiles there was a lot more rope in everyday life: it hoisted sails, secured the load, tethered your horse and tied your boots. Knot lore was a necessity & appreciation for a sturdy length of cord was universal.

It’s not surprising that this most necessary and utilitarian article should find its way into Victorian sentimental jewellery. It stood for strength and steadfastness, for endurance and faithfulness. I love how the jeweller left little gaps where the lengths of gold cross over each other – a little detail that elevates this ring from others.

It’s a fabulous stacker or the perfect antique wedding band for those romantics amongst us 💛 It is super comfortable and an absolute delight to wear. It has been professionally polished and is ready for immediate everyday wear.

The measurements are: 4.6mm wide, 1.6mm thick, weighs 3 grams

Size Aus/UK O 1/2

somewhat resizable – please note the area at the back of the ring has not been seamlessly spliced together and therefore could be resized a little smaller at this point if needed.
