Beautiful vintage English hallmarked 9K yellow gold keeper ring. The lovely wide ring features a braided knot style design with a smooth back band. The "Keeper" ring is also known as a GUARD ring that was introduced in 1761 by King George III who presented a wedding ring band encircled with diamonds to his bride, Queen Charlotte. Today Keeper rings continue their popularity as unusual wedding rings, unique engagement rings, eternity rings and anniversary bands. This charming band is simple enough for stacking with others yet classic enough as a wedding band.

Our collection consists of pieces that are of antique and vintage condition, which means that all our items are second-hand and used. Customers are not purchasing 'new', 'perfect’, and 'unworn items', and as such, should expect wear and imperfection. It should be expected that these pieces will have normal wear and tear according to their age. Wear could include patina, scuffs on the gold, slightly loose but secure stones, and light scratches on the stones. We try our best to photograph everything accurately with detailed pictures that can be enlarged and will point out any flaws we feel are noteworthy. Please review the photos carefully before purchasing and reach out to us with any questions.
