Holding much significance, keeper rings were cherished throughout the romantic era of the Victorian period, tradition holds that a keeper ring was given as a betrothal ring a year prior to the official Engagement.

This gorgeous woven example with an intricate traditional wheat pattern with overlaid gold beads, ornate triple split shoulders and is fully hallmarked for manufacture in Chester, 9ct, 1909, the gold is lush with a rosy antique hue.

A firm favourite amongst collectors, these rare keeper rings have retained their popularity, as they can be styled in an array of ways. The perfect choice for a wedding band, promise ring or even a decadent stacking ring.

*The Chester Assay Office was permanently closed in 1962 by Act Of Parliament because it wasn’t getting enough work. The result of this closure was that Antique and Vintage items with Chester Hallmarks increased in value to collectors simply due to scarcity on the market.
