AN ANTIQUE ART DECO ARBUTUS BLOSSOM18KT WHITE GOLDLADIES WEDDING BANDRING!
THIS CLASSIC ORIGINAL CIRCA 1920'S ART DECO ERA J.R. WOODS & SONS LADIES WEDDING BAND IS CRAFTED ENTIRELY OF ALL SOLID (NOT HOLLOW CAST LIKE NEW JEWELRY) 18KT REAL WHITE GOLD WITH AN IMPRESSIVE WEIGHT OF 1/10 TROY OUNCE ~ 3.1 GRAMS. THIS IDENTICAL RING IS PICTURED IN J.R. WOOD'S 1923 CATALOG AND IS CONSIDERED TO BE EXTREEMLY SCARCE FOR MANY REASONS. FIRST OF ALL, WOOD'S 18K RINGS WERE MUCH MORE COSTLY THAN HIS 14K MODELS AND IN 1923 A COUPLE OF DOLLARSWAS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FEEDING A FAMILY OR NOT BUT NOT JUST REGULAR 18K GOLDS COSTING THAT MUCH MOREASTHE RINGS MADE IN HIS18K WHITE GOLD VERSIONS WERE AN ADDITIONAL 30% HIGHER THAN THE SAME IN 18K YELLOW OR GREEN MAKING THIS HIS MOST EXPENSIVE 18K RING AT $6.20. WHITE GOLD WAS ALOT MORE EXPENSIVE IN 1923 AS NOW-A-DAYS, MOSTWHITE GOLD ITEMS ARE JUST COATED IN RHODIUM BUT NEARLY A CENTURY AGO, WHITE GOLD WAS MADE WITH PALLADIUM (A VERY EXPENSIVE METAL)MIXTURES SO THEY WILL NOT WEAR OFF LIKE ALOT OF MODERN WHITE GOLD RHODIUM PLATED JEWELRY.NEEDLESS TO SAY, IN THE 1920'S, VERY FEW COULD AFFORD A SOLID GOLD BAND LET ALONE ONE THAT WAS CRAFTEDOF THE MOST PRECIOUS OF 18K WHITE GOLD THUS,VERY FEW WERE MADE AND EVEN FEWER EXIST TODAY MAKING THIS BAND EXTREMELY WONDERFUL AND EXTRA RARE! THE ARBITIS BLOSSOM AND WREATH DESIGN CRAETEDWITH A CONVEX BORDER THATIS EXQUISITELY EMBOSSED WITH RELIEFS OF REPEATINGFLOWERS WITH DELICATE MICRO BEADING ENCOMPASSING THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES. SO OFTEN THESE AUTHENTIC NEAR CENTURY OLD ORIGINALS ARE IN HORRIBLE OVERLY WORN CONDITION WITH SOMEONE ELSE'S INITIALS OR WEDDING DATE ENGRAVED ON THE INTERIOR BUT THIS ELEGANT ART DECO BAND HAS VERY LITTLE WEAR TO THE SUMPTUOUS DESIGN AND WAS NEVER ENGRAVED. IT WAS SO NICE THAT I KEPT IT AS AN ACCENT RING OR TO BE STACKED WITH OTHERS BANDS AS A WONDERFUL WEARABLE COLLECTION THAT ALWAYS RECEIVED MANY COMPLIMENTS AND A PLEASANT CONVERSATION STARTER WITH THOSE WHO SHARED MY APPRECIATION FOR THE FINEST IN ESTATE~VINTAGE & ANTIQUE JEWELRY. NOW-A-DAYS, MOST WEDDING BANDS ARE HOLLOW CAST BEING EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT ANDFLIMSY SO THEY DENT EASILY. IT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN EVERYONE STILL WANTS GOLD JEWELRY BUT FEW CAN AFFORD IT NOW THAT GOLD PRICES HAVE SKYROCKETED. YOU'D NEVER FIND A 3mm WIDTH BAND MADE TODAY WITH SUCH A SIGNIFICANT GOLD WEIGHT OR BEAUTIFUL DECORATION. THIS WAS CRAFTED AT A TIME WHEN FINE JEWELRY WAS MADE TO LAST A LIFETIME WITH THE INTENTION OF BEING HANDED DOWN FOR GENERATIONS. THIS SIZE 7 (NOT SIZEABLE) BAND EXEMPLIFIES ALL THE ARTISTRY AND QUALITY LACKING IN MODERN MASS PRODUCED JEWELRY. IT'S WHY I LOVE ANTIQUE PIECES, ESPECIALLY FROM MY CHILDHOOD. I CAN REMEMBER RELATIVES AND FAMILY FRIENDS WHEN I WAS A YOUNG GIRL WEARING RINGS OF THIS TYPE ALTHOUGH SELDOM WERE EVER LIKELY TO BE OF FAR MORE COSTLY 18KT WHITE GOLD OR BY ONE OF AMERICA'S PREMIER JEWELRY MAKERS. THESE TRUE EARLYART DECO PERIOD ORIGINALS, WHEN IN SUCH OUTSTANDING UNTOUCHED CONDITION, ARE A TRUE RARITY TO FIND TODAY BUT EVEN RARER IS FINDING ONE THAT'S BEING OFFERED IN A REAL sale WITH NO HIDDEN PRICE OR SECRET AMOUNT REQUIRED TO WIN.JUST offer AS YOU ARE COMFORTABLE AND REMEMBER TO ADD THIS, OR ANY OF MY OTHER ITEMS YOU HAVE AN INTEREST IN,TO YOUR "WISH/WANT LIST" AND IF YOU LOVE MYITEMS AS MUCH AS I DO, PLEASE ADD ME AS A "FAVORITE SELLER".I TRY AND LIST AS MANY NEW (OLD) PIECES AS MY ENERGY AND TIME ALLOWS SO THERE'S ALWAYS A LOT OF GOODIES TO ENJOY EVERY WEEK. THE INTERIOR OF THE BAND IS HALLMARKED WITH A "(SIDEWAYS "W")" FOR J.R. WOODS & SONS OF NEW YORK, NEW YORKAND "18K" FOR THE ALL SOLID 18KT WHITE GOLD OF750 PURITY STANDARD. THIS GORGEOUS RING HAS NO CORROSION, NO OXIDATION, NO REPAIRSAND NO DEEP OR BOTHERSOME SCRATCHES. I ACQUIRED THIS STUNNINGBAND OVER 25YEARS AGO WHILE HANDLING THE ESTATE OF A LAWYER'S WIFEWHO RESIDED IN BRENTWOOD, CALIFORNIA. THIS FABULOUS ANTIQUE ART DECO ERASOLID 18KT WHITE GOLDLADIES WEDDING BAND RING IS ABSOLUTELY 100% ORIGINAL!IF YOU LOVE FANTASTICANTIQUE JEWELRY THEN YOU WILL LOVE THIS SPECTACULAR ORIGINAL ART DECO ERA SOLID 18KT GOLD LADIESBAND RING!
