Hand engraved antique spoon ring
This antique spoon ring is handcrafted from a vintage Wendell Manufacturing Company spoon from Cleveland, Ohio, USA, made sometime between 1885 and 1900. The handle is engraved with the date "1897" and the ring is soldered closed for a comfortable fit. It's a unique piece, not a reproduction, and is currently a size W in Australia (size 12 in the US).
Spoon rings have been around since 17th century England and were originally created by servants who couldn't afford traditional engagement rings.
This beautiful ring has a rich history as a symbol of love, making it a special gift for a 5th wedding anniversary.
