This beautiful antique wedding band is a beautiful example of the simply elegant styles of the mid to late 19th century.
Rendered in exquisite 18 karat yellow-gold, you can see that the ring is quite old.
The original stamped pattern that adorns the wide exterior is quite worn, almost obscuring some of the original design.
A true collector's piece, the ring really speaks to a bygone era.
The ring was manufactured by the renowned American jewelry company, J. R. Wood and Sons.
Founded in 1850, in Trenton, New Jersey, the company produced a wide variety of jewelry and accessories.
This wedding band dates to very near the company's inception.
There are two small marks stamped on the interior of the band.
The first mark reads "W", for J. R. Wood and Sons and is followed by a "Triple-X".
The three "x's" in the mark indicate that the ring is solid 18 karat gold.
The piece has been professionally tested to ensure the purity of the gold.
Though the ring shows its years in the uneven wearing to the exterior, it speaks to his antique authenticity and adds a great deal of romance to the ring.
When we found this ring, we were so excited because of the design and the personality from years of loving wear.
