Antique Victorian 22ct Yellow Gold Wedding Ring Band - Size M - Dated 1859. Has no hallmarks due to its engraving (ie been modified). The ring is tested and confirmed to be solid 22ct yellow gold. Showing only a few fine scratches and small amounts of wear. The ring style is a wedding band.This ring is dated to 1859 which puts it in the Victorian period. It is handmade with absolute excellent craftsmanship. The gold purity has been tested and it was confirmed to be solid 22ct yellow gold.
The ring has not been resized. Has had no repairs made to it. The only modification is the period original engraving. At first glance, one would assume 1959 to be the date of the engraving. Closer inspection of the engraving shows victorian style lettering and an early style engraving technique where the graver would be drawn forwards and backwards in a zigzag pattern to form a tiny straight line.The ring is comfortable to wear. Good heavy solid gold feel to it. Unfortunately there is one tiny flat spot on the band (shown in final close up photo of the ring). This is caused by a previous owner scratching the ring on an acid testing touch stone.
Given its age, the ring has likely passed through many hands so this is to be expected. Luckily the flat spot isn't deep and can be easily buffed out if you chose to do so once receiving the ring.
This ring is Australian made. It has no signs of English assay markings. The hallmarks would have been cut away to bring exact attention to the engraving, as typical symbol of Victorian era love and affection.
