Vintage 18ct Gold, Engraved Band Ring
An elegantly engraved band ring in a rich yellow 18ct gold.
Almost certainly Australian made and dating to the second half of the 20th C, this eye catching ring features a delicate pattern of hand-engraved scrolls and geometric detail all the way around.
The deft etching reminds me a little of ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs!
Quite a substantial ring at 3.5mm wide and 4.6 grams, it is still very comfortable to wear. It stacks beautifully with other vintage rings but is also quite lovely enough to feature on its own.
It would make a gorgeous vintage wedding band, too.
