If these rings could talk - this little sweetie isn't in perfect condition, but there is so much history tucked inside!

She takes the form of a popular art deco style - the orange blossom eternity band was popular through the 1920s and 1930s, and her engraved flowers alternate with baguette-style gold panels. The baguette was well loved in the deco period for its crisp geometric lines, and remained popular through the retro styles midcentury. Orange blossoms became indelibly linked to brides thanks to Queen Victoria, but surged in popularity in the 20th century thanks to American manufacturer Traub's eternity bands; the flower was meant to represent innocence and fertility as well as an everlasting love.

Inside, a succinct personal inscription - FP to MH 12-24-41 - paints of picture of a wartime winter wedding on Christmas Eve. With the December 7, 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor marking the American entry into the second world war, we can't help but wonder if this wedding was hastened by FP's imminent deployment, and if he made it back home to his bride in the end.

We also know that this ring wasn't always a petite size 4 - a past downsizing has brought two blossoms side by side - but we believe it's probably best that it stay that way now.
