My goodness, do we have a treat for you! This rare antique French 18ct Gold gimmel wedding band would make an incredible addition to anyone's collection. Crafted entirely from richly saturated 18ct Gold, the outer band flaunts an ornate diamond-shaped design surrounded by textured detailing, creating an opulent visual contrast.

From the moment you lock eyes with this antique wedding band you can tell she's a French fancy, due to her undeniable splendour and rich detail, but this is certified with the French Eagles head stamp which can be found on the edge of the ring band.

Condition

VERY GOOD-EXCELLENT. This antique French 18ct Gold gimmel wedding band is in wonderful condition! The engravings are crisp throughout and the textured band brings a certain 'je ne sais quoi' to this Victorian ring! On the inside of the band, there is a small nick, but this does not affect the overall functionality of the ring. The hidden opening still works perfectly, but due to her antique age should be handled with care. If you wanted to add your own personal touch, you could even add a small engraving to the Gold which is masked when closed! Due to the design of this ring, resizes are not available. This antique Gold wedding band will certainly set your collection apart from the rest!
