A beautiful antique keeper ring crafted in 9 carat gold dating back to 1918. This lovely ring has a wonderful rosey hue which is typical of antique gold. The front has scalloped edges which adds a touch of elegance and sophistication. Heart shaped motifs are meticulously hand engraved into the gold adding a touch of romance to the overall design of the ring. Small in size, it has the perfect proportions for a pinky ring. This adds uniqueness and individuality to the wearer's style with its compact size making it ideal for daily wear. Keeper rings or "guard rings" as they were sometimes known were traditionally worn by ladies in the 18th century to stop more expensive rings from slipping off the finger. In very good antique condition with some surface scratching to gold and a wonderful soft patina which adds to the story and character of the piece. To the inner shoulder a line is noted so it is possible that another shank could have been added at some point in its lifetime. This sometimes happened with older pieces where the original shank had worn with the passage of time. This beautiful ring is a true treasure both in terms of its endearing design and historical significance and is sure to become a treasured addition to any antique jewellery lover's collection.

Care Instructions

Chemicals and chlorine can damage jewellery. It is recommended that you remove it when using body care products, spraying perfume or hairspray, bathing, swimming and whilst doing housework.

Settings and stones can be damaged by accidentally striking the hand against a hard surface. It is best to remove rings when carrying out any manual work or gardening.

To clean your jewellery use tepid water and a few drops of mild soap, a soft jewellery brush or cloth.

Extra care should be taken with opal, turquoise and pearl as these are porous so soaking should be avoided.  To clean wipe with a damp soft cloth and avoid extreme changes in temperature.

When you are not wearing your jewellery it is best stored away in a suitable jewellery box for safekeeping.
