My archive has an excess of beautiful antique rings from The Spare Room that I never had a chance to show you. That seemed like a shame, so I thought I’d round up these forgotten beauties in their very own post!
This ring. I’ve never seen anything like this ring, anywhere. I’ve seen fede rings, with the clasped hands motif, and I’ve seen textured rings and rings with gems, but I’ve never seen a fede ring with a carved gemstone pair of clasped hands anywhere except at The Spare Room.
I’ve been pining for this piece for a few years now, I haven’t showed it to you since 2016 so I decided to include it again! I think these photos are an improvement on my original shots, anyway. Such an extraordinary piece!
File this one under “If Becky Could Afford This, She’d Already Own It.”
If you love antique – especially the really old stuff, from the 1700’s and 1800’s, you absolutely need to know The Spare Room.
Their collection is incomparable and they’re so knowledgeable that it’s worth stopping by to see them at any antique show even if you don’t have the budget to take a historical treasure home with you. Unless you’re a truly major league antique jewelry aficionado, these ladies will be able to show you something you’ve never seen before.
Here’s another batch of unusual and utterly exquisite antique rings! I don’t know the exact age of these beauties because I was too excited about taking pictures of them to take good notes, but they’re also in the same 1700’s-1800’s range.
What’s special about these beauties is they’re actually all set with the same stone: rock crystal!Read More
