ANTIQUE EDWARDIAN BAND RING 18CT GOLD FORGET ME NOT CIRCA 1915
A grand Antique Edwardian band ring modelled in solid 18ct Yellow Gold and engraved with detailed Forget me nots which encircle the band in a lovely decorative fashion.
Forget me nots in an old German tale were discovered by two lovers walking by a river one day. After picking a beautiful bouquet of blue flowers for his loved one the poor gentleman sadly fell in the river and was swept away but before he vanished he yelled out ‘Forget-me-not!’ giving the flowers their name and a long lasting symbolism of love and remembrance.
The piece is solid and robust and complete with hallmarks within which have faded with age but indicate it was made in Chester, Circa 1915.
It would make a distinctive wedding band with a lovely sentiment.
