Antique Rings

Antique Gold, Platinum and Diamond / Engagement Rings

An Antique is defined as an item that is 100 or more years old - in jewellery terms an item of antique jewellery is considered to be dated pre 1920 as this is the date set by the Assay office for hallmarking exemption.

All of the antique rings on this page are dated to earlier than 1920 and have true character.  Victorian Gold rings, antique platinum rings, Art Nouveau silver rings with diamonds, rubies, emeralds, sapphires and other gemstones - a fantastic selection with style and class.  We do NOT polish to 'as new' but ensure all items are clean and in good condition - we prefer to let the items character show through.  However we will professionally polish any item at the request of the customer.  If you would like to enquire about a particular antique ring not listed here then contact us with your requirements.  Please remember many antique items do not carry full UK hallmarks, but are all tested for gold purity and are guaranteed to be as described.

All descriptions give as much detail as possible and the sizes are given in UK and US measurements.  If you need a ring resizing we will advise whether this is possible depending on the style of the ring and the amount of resizing necessary, however we are not able to undertake this on internet orders.  We do liaise with the British Jeweller's Association to find a local jeweller for you who can assist in this so please ask us if you require our assistance.
