A Vintage 10 Karat Gold and Diamond Buckle Ring offered by Nouveau Motley
Shop Home Page: http://www.NouveauMotley.etsy.com

This unique buckle ring is crafted in 10 karat yellow gold with diamond details. It is vintage and was made during the 1980s/early 1990s. It is marked "10 K" along with a model number of "417" along the inside of the band. It has 10 tiny pave set diamonds each measuring just under 1mm in a white gold setting.

It is a size 10 and could easily be sized up or down, within reason, by your local jeweler. The face is 9mm wide.

The symbol of the buckle, or garter, was a extremely popular theme in jewelry during the Victorian Era into the modern times. It was a symbol of strength, protection, and love, as well as binding loyalty.

This exceptional ring would make a gorgeous and unique right hand ring or a lovely, sentiment rich, engagement or promise ring.




















A few notes on antique and vintage items and my experience with them:

I have been raised around antiques. My uncle was an auctioneer and dealer since long before I was born and, having no children of his own, took me on to pass down his personal legacy. He has been teaching me about the subtleties and details in which one can tell the genuine article from the fake and reproduced since I was a small child. For the last 14 years I have been working hand in hand with him in our antique businesses.

Making vintage inspired jewelry has also given me a leg up in the world of antique jewelry as lately I have seen the field flooded with antique reproductions made with the SAME EXACT components I make my handmade jewelry with. Its unfortunate, but true. The more frightening aspect of this is that when I occasionally and respectfully point out to these dealers that they are selling a reproduction piece they tend to get extremely hostile. Because of this, I have been holding my tongue more and more, but still feel awful about the bum deal someone is going to get.

While I have extensive knowledge of antiques and collectibles, there is no way the human brain, even with the aid of every price guide in print, could know everything about everything. I describe my antiques to the best of my ability and reference multiple sources before making educated statements about a piece. I stand behind what I sell and if you find out that a piece is not as described I will happily offer you a refund.
