Both sentimentality and symbolism were important elements of Victorian design, and the knot, buckle and bow were in the language of the day all symbols of the strength of binding love. The buckle was a popular motif into the Edwardian era till 1919.
This is a gorgeous gold buckle ring crafted in 1915. It is wide, three dimensional band with a beautifully chased buckle accented with tiny clear and blue stones (I assume paste but they may be stones) It carries English hallmarks for Chester; 375; the letter P in script for 1915 and a makers mark AM.
Dimensions are : the buckle is slightly over 3/8 inch wide; the chased section is slightly over 2/8 inch wide; weight is 1.6 grams. The size is US 7.75 and could be re-sized if desired. The overall condition of this ring is fine to the ring front; the band is misshapen slightly and has a little bruising. This is clear in the images and does not detract from the ring on the hand. The gold has a lovely rose aged patina.
A lovely old piece, it has fine chasing and is beautiful on the hand.
