Antique Edwardian Plain 18k Gold Wedding Band

It was 1915 and the world was at war. The Great War, they called it, but it was particularly horrible and not great at all. He was destined to head for the front lines but first he had something to do. He popped into a jewelry shop on Warstone Lane, the irony wasn’t lost on him, and he picked out two simple gold bands, one for himself and one for her. He knew she didn’t need anything fancy, that she would say that all they needed was each other.

Hand crafted in 1915 in Birmingham, England, this wonderful wedding band has that velvety soft feel that only old gold can achieve. It’s a 4.7 mm wide band that is fully hallmarked with ’18’ for 18 karat gold, a crown for England, an anchor for Birmingham and the letter q for the date of 1915. This ring is a size 8 and weighs 1.3 grams.

Whenever he felt hopeless or helpless in the long days of the war, he just spun this ring on his finger and thought of his beautiful wife at home, waiting on their baby.
