Just a quick blog today. Dating vintage costume jewellery is something that can be quite easy or can be complex. This is an easy way to date a piece to within a 30 year period. I am a member of many jewellery discussion boards and would recommend joining. This information I discovered from the Yahoo group "The Jewelry Ring".
This ring band I had never seen before. The rest of the ring looked to date from around the 1930s, but I was not sure. The band is very distinct.
The band is flattened wire bent to fit a finger but with a wide opening and soldered to the underside of the main body of the ring. The ring actually dates to between 1900 and the 1920s.
The above ring has been sold but here is a few that are still available
Just a few of the original vintage and vintage modern costume jewellery available from Jewels and Finery
