Here is a classic antique wedding band manufactured by the J. R. Wood and Sons Company in dazzling 14 karat gold.
This is a timeless, beautiful ring elegant in its simplicity.
Founded in 1850, in Trenton, New Jersey, J. R. Wood and Sons produced a wide variety of jewelry and accessories.
The J. R. Wood and Sons' 1919 catalogue describes the company as "diamond cutters, wedding ring makers and manufacturers of fine gold and platinum jewelry.
As you can see, this beautiful antique ring has a wonderfully classic look.
The band has a nice, bold size and smooth finish.
You will find a number of hallmarks and personalized inscriptions on the interior of the ring.
A stamped maker's mark reads "14K" and is followed by a "W" on its side (a mark frequently used by J. R. Wood and Sons).
The ring has been professionally tested to ensure the purity of the gold.
We love the romantic, hand-engraved inscription that reads "W.J.H. to M.L.C., Nov. 23, 1904".
Little details like this are what give antique jewelry its wonderfully unique appeal.
Though the ring shows a bit of expected wear and some very minor surface-scratching, it remains in good antique condition overall.
