Handmade Antique Button Jewelry - Victorian Button Ring - Silver Sun Flower - Adjustable - circa 1860-1910

This Victorian style antique button ring is made with a genuine antique button set on a silver plated filigree ring. This button has a classic design with multiple layers. I work with buttons dating mostly between 1860 - 1910. Many of the buttons I work with like the one in this ring come from ladies dresses passed from dress to dress, mother to daughter, to you.

Fashion and Jewelry designs of the early Victorian era reflected the romantic notions of the young queen’s courtship and marriage. Love tokens, travel charms and other symbol-laden, sentiment-infused jewelry was popular from 1830 to the turn of the century. Innovations in production methods in the 1800s popularized steel picture buttons, used on women and children’s clothing from the 1860s into the Edwardian era. Victorian pictures buttons, often with multiple layers, featured detailed botanical designs and scenes from Classical art and European fairytales. Highly valued, buttons were often transferred from garment to garment as dresses were re-cut to meet changing fashion trends.

* This is a wonderfully sturdy adjustable ring that fits from just below a 6 to above an 11.
* The ends are rounded, so this is a comfortable adjustable ring.
* The button is about 3/4" across.
* The fourth photo shows an assortment of antique buttons from my collection and a late Victorian photo for historical context.
*All items come in a gift box
