Buckle rings have been popular since the Victorian period Queen Victoria is said to have popularised the use of the buckle and garter in jewellery. She was the head of the Order of the Garter. Male members of the Order wore a garter, amongst other regalia, around their legs but Queen Victoria began to wear her Order as a form of armlet. This led to bracelets in the form of a garter with buckle being designed. In turn, rings in the form of a belt and buckle were produced. The Order of the Garter was supposed to symbolise the qualities of loyalty, fidelity, and protection and so led to the creating of very symbolic jewellery.

So, generally, buckle rings symbolise eternity as the band curves around and threads back into itself. The buckle also represents loyalty and binding love when given by one person to another. Very romantic.

Postage and insurance are included in the price.
