Silver and 17thC Bronze Circle & Sun Ring
Badger's Velvet bronze rings are beautiful and each is unique.
We purchased a collection of bronze buttons from a dealer in antiquities and are slowly creating one off pieces of jewellery from each.
The bronze button has the back shank removed and is then set into a silver bezel and mounted onto a silver square edged band.
The Large sunburst bronze is edged with an etched circle and the bronze will eventually start to show through as the dark patina of age wears off as the ring is worn and exposed to everyday use.
It is hard to date each piece. but they are believed to have been made between the early 17th and 18th century and were possibly military Spanish buttons.
The Sunburst ring is here.
