Antique Silver Spoon Rings

Victorian Silver Spoon Ring, Size S, Sheffield 1898

£60.00 GBP

Jewellery with history

Handcrafted solid silver spoon ring made from an antique silver spoon.

This beautiful ring has an intricate bright cut pattern* of leaves across the front, on what would have been the handle of the spoon.

It bears the  original hallmark underneath the handle so it's hidden from view, however, the certificate from The Assay Office which accompanies the ring confirms the Hallmarking date to be Sheffield 1913 - it's 108 years old!

*A bright cut pattern is engraved by hand and is original to this spoon ring.

Origins

Spoon rings originated in 17th century England and were originally used as wedding rings. Servants could not afford to have wedding rings made of precious metals so they would steal the silverware from the manor houses and have them turned into wedding rings. For a time you could tell who the servants were working for by the crest on their rings.
