Australian, Art Deco
Willis & Sons, 15ct
Antique Australian Rounded Band Ring in 15ct Gold
A classic Art Deco design, this rounded profile band is very comfortable to wear and looks so very chic on the hand.
Crafted in a rosey-hued yellow gold, it bears the unicorn mark of Australian maker Willis & Sons. This stamp was used from 1904 until the workshop closed in 1931, so we can confidently date this ring to the early 1900s.
In excellent antique condition, it shows no thinning to the band. Micro-abrasions to the gold give the surface a lovely buttery patina, consistent with its age. It could easily be polished out by a jeweller, but we prefer it just as it is!
A beautiful and very wearable piece of Australian history.
