A classic early 20th Century braided keeper ring, modelled in rose gold it dates to the year 1912. A fine example of the style, keeper rings were intended to be worn above wedding bands and engagement rings in order to stop them falling off. In the Georgian and Victorian eras it was popular to have rings slightly oversized, so they could be worn over gloves, and so when worn on bare hands they would easily slip off.
