Classic Vintage 22k Band 7.25 1938
For millennia, the precious metal has been associated with with the glow and power of the sun, and high karat gold makes the connection clear. The saturated hue has a beautiful warmth and shine.
Gold alloys are softer in higher karats, so this old ring has developed some lovely wear over its lifetime with all the little scratches and dings that can't be replicated in a modern piece. While band rings are easy to resize, and often bear evidence of past resizing, we don't recommend it for this ring as that beautiful patina would be lost. The inside of this ring bears a clear, full set of British hallmarks dating it to Birmingham 1938, maker's mark ACCo, along with a stamp for the letter O, the equivalent to size 7.25 - stock rings were often stamped with their size to help jewellers quickly locate what they were looking for, and it's always a treat to find a ring that has remained unsized (especially after nearly 85 years!).
We just adore the quiet luxury of high karat gold - a simple, stoneless band in a completely timeless style.
Very good vintage condition.
