Antique Victorian Keeper Ring in 18k Gold, London

     The Keeper ring has many legends, amongst them is the that it was given as a sort of pre-engagement or betrothal ring a year before an official engagement was made.  A sign that the giver thought that the receiver was worth 'keeping.'  All roads lead to romance in Victorian England and the appeal and mystery of the Keeper ring still abounds today. This Victorian ring is wonderfully sentimental and would serve well as a great wedding band. It could be sized down a bit (or up a bit). It has weathered some in its over one hundred years of wear and is sure to look great after a hundred more. The gold has the soft feel of heavy velvet.

     This large and wonderfully handcrafted Keeper ring is a size 9 US. Handcrafted in 18 karat gold, it weighs 10 grams and has a lovely heft. Made in London, England in the year 1894, it is fully hallmarked with the crown, lion face and the date letter 'T' as well as '18' for the gold karat. The ring could easily be resized to suit a new wearer.
