This elegant platinum wedding band has a very interesting provenance. It belonged to Jane P., wife of a Pittsburgh steel tycoon, Mr. P., who knew Andrew Carnegie well. Mr. P. also knew Winston Churchill (In fact, Churchill gifted him an exquisite cigar humidor box made from sterling silver with a carved jadeite dragon handle. The family has a photo of Mr. P. playing badminton with Churchill (wearing Bermuda-style shorts, no less!). Winston Churchill visited Edward P. several times during World War II, regarding production of steel for the war industry for Great Britain.
