Silver Spoon Ring Dated 1936 Handmade Antique Classic Solid Sterling 925 Unique:
Beautifully DetailedAntique Handmade Sterling Silver Spoon Ring
This lovely ring has been hand crafted from a beautifully detailed designed sterling silver 925 spoon which unusually utilises the spoon bowl and wraps the handle as detail to the front. The handle has been stunningly crafted with high quality detail. The original spoon is fully hallmarked, and these are displayed as detail to the inside of the ring, (makers markis a little rubbed but can still be faintly seen though not read clearly, Lion Passant, assayed in London in 1936 )
This ring is currently size R (UK) and 8 3/4 (US) but can be adjusted slightly to suit your requirements so please do let me know if you require it to be re-sized. It will come packaged with a hand made unbleached cotton bag featuring a hand painted little bird.
These rings are truly unique and would make a stunning and unusual gift with Christmas fast approaching, or beautiful treat for yourself.
Spoon rings were first made in 17th century England as wedding rings by servants who could not afford expensive precious metals. Servants would steal a silver spoon from their master and have it turned into a wedding ring to be worn on the thumb of their love. Servants who were caught were sentenced for "stealing a silver spoon". An expression of love would be punished with a sentence of 7 years imprisonment overseas. When they arrived some of the servants are recorded as having met skillful prisoners who could create these beautiful rings and they would take yet another spoon from an officer or their new master to present their love with a precious token.
Ever since these times, spoon rings have been a timeless and unique gift of love, a wonderful piece of heritage not forgotten
