I love the Buckle motif which was so popular in Victorian times. Queen Victoria, who was of course the head of the Order of the Garter, was too modest to wear the garter on her leg , so she wore it on her arm, and the buckle was fashioned into all sorts of jewelry to emulate her. This one is particularly nice. I don't see them in silver too often, and the black detailing is lovely. It is a size 6 to 6 and 1/2, and the band measures 1/4 of an inch wide. The ring is fully hallmarked, declaring that it is British silver (sterling), minted in Birmingham, in the year 1890, by the makers S.BRS. This is a lovely, wearable, piece of jewelry.
