Fully hallmarked by the Assay Office Of Birmingham for 22ct Gold in 1923, this ring is in fair condition at nearly 100 years old, with a band that has thinned a little with time to the 3mm/ size, but is uniform in those measurements.

Please note, at under £250 this ring does not qualify for our Free Resize service.

How does it work?

We send purchases out first so you can be sure you love your ring before resizing.

In the box we include a finger measure, and a resizing form.

Just fill out the form and send it and the ring to us within 14 days of receiving your order.

Can a ring be resized before being sent out?

We send rings out first so you can be sure you love your ring before resizing.

Having a ring resized is a personalisation, indicating you are satisfied with your purchase and once complete you cannot return the ring under our usual terms. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Will a ring resize well?

Rings are often resized as a person's fingers change size throughout their lives, and rings need to change with them.

Most rings can be easily resized 2 sizes up or down, many can be sized further. If there's a ring in particular you want information on, just start a chat or use the 'Ask Us' option on any product page. If a ring you buy doesn't fit, and we can't safely resize it, you can return it as per our standard returns policy.

Not sure about sizes? Check out out sizing page.

Which rings qualify?

Rings with a purchase price of £250 or more, except where stated in the ring's description.

For non-UK customers we are unable to offer our Free Resizing service, though we still offer free delivery.

How long does resizing take?

Depending on our workload and the complexity of the ring's structure a resize can take between 3 and 10 working days (most commonly 5).

COVID-19 Restrictions: For safety and in line with national restrictions we are operating at a reduced capacity. We are still accepting resizes and we will still strive for fast turnarounds.

Found the perfect ring, but can't afford the whole cost right away? For UK customers we offer layaway on all of our jewellery priced at £500 or more.

What is Layaway?

Layaway is a system whereby you can guarantee the item will be yours without having to pay the whole amount immediately. You make an initial deposit of 25% and then over 3 months (or faster if you prefer) make the remaining payments. Once the whole amount is paid we'll send you your purchase.

Can anyone get Layaway?

Layaway is available to UK customers for jewellery priced at £500 or more.

Can I do layaway on Sale items?

Yes! Providing the sale price is £500 or more. We cannot offer the use of discount codes on layaway items, but Sale items are absolutely fine.

How do I get an item on Layaway?

You'll need to complete a layaway agreement with us. It's very straightforward to get started and we'll talk you through the steps. Just use the "Ask Us" section on any product page, or use the live chat to let us know you're interested in layaway and we'll help you from there.

Does Layaway require a Credit Check?

No. Layaway is a payment plan and not credit. We don't perform any credit checks.

What if I have more questions about Layaway?

Use the "Ask Us" section on any product page, or use the live chat and we'll help answer any questions you may have.


Can it be resized?

Most rings can be easily resized 2 sizes up or down, many can be sized further. If there's a ring in particular you want information on, just start a chat or use the 'Ask Us' option on any product page. For our UK customers we offer our Free Resizing service, see the page for details.

What will be delivered?

Your jewellery will arrive inside a large ring box, inside a storage/presentation box. That box will be included alongside an envelope containing a letter about your specific jewellery and its history for the recipient. These are delivered in an unbranded box, as we know many people want their proposals to be a surprise. If you are outside the UK we may be required by your country to include a customs declaration on the packaging.

How quickly will I receive it?

UK: We aim to dispatch within one working day, and we use next day tracked services for our shipping. We also perform some additional fraud checks on our orders because of the high value of our antiques. As an example, most people who place an order on a Monday morning will get their items Tuesday or Wednesday, but please factor in that fraud checks and shipping during times of national uncertainty mean this cannot be guaranteed. We always provide dispatch notifications and tracking information to you as soon as we have it.

International: We aim to dispatch within one working day and use Royal Mail's International Tracked & Signed service. The service estimates delivery 3-5 working days to Europe and 5-7 days to the rest of the world.

What if it doesn't fit?

UK: If the ring is perfect except for the fit, we'll resize it for you free of charge for any ring with a purchase price of £250 or more. You can read more about it under Resizing.

International: A local jeweller should be able to resize your ring for you. Most rings easily resize up or down 2 sizes, and often can be resized further depending on the ring. If you would like to check how well a right might resize you can contact us for more information. 

How do you determine diamond carat?

With antique jewellery you wouldn't want to remove and re-set the diamonds just to weigh them. Diamond carat estimates are done based on visual assessment of the size, shape and cut using a digital calliper. Our presentations of diamond carat are a guide, but should not be considered a guarantee.

How do you determine gold carat?

Many pieces of jewellery are hallmarked to say the carat of the gold. Where this is present we present that. Where it is not we use chemical testing to determine the carat of the gold on the surface of the shank. Our presentations of gold carat are a guide, but should not be considered a guarantee.

How do you determine age?

We use three methods together to determine age. When the assay office has used hallmarking letters to specify the year of manufacture we use those as our guide, when clear and unambiguous these give an exact year we present. If there are no hallmarks or the hallmarks are hard to discern on older antiques we factor in the style of the ring and the cut of the diamonds. The way diamonds have been cut over the centuries give a good guide to how best to date a ring, and jewellery, like clothing, has a fashion coherent with its era. Sometimes we also obtain jewellery in sets, where the dating of the other pieces from that set can act as a suggestion of age for the ring. Our presentations of year or era are a guide, but should not be considered a guarantee.

What Happens?

We Pack Discreetly

We wouldn't want to spoil the surprise. Our boxes are unbranded and only contain information we have to give to the courier. (Orders outside the UK may require a customs declaration).

The Extras

As well as the jewellery you purchase, we provide a high quality jewellery box and a gift envelope that contains information about your item and its place in history. If the description says there are any historical documents with it, we'll include those too.

Peace Of Mind

If for any reason you want to return your purchase, our 30 Day Returns policy means you can buy with confidence.
