Rare extra wide antique wedding bands from Zeeland in the Southern Netherlands

Rare extra wide antique wedding bands

from Zeeland in the Southern Netherlands

Original Dutch antique ring with Amsterdam rose cut diamond
Click here and here to read all about both antique Dutch wedding bands.
 

These extraordinary wide wedding bands are called "tonnenring" (Dutch for barrel ring). A typical regional piece of jewelry from Zeeland, the Southern coastal part of the Netherlands where every village had its own specific type of jewelry. Even more, every religion had its own typical distinctive differences of wearing and style.

In the county Walcheren this ring came into fashion in the second half of the 19th century (1850-1900). A wide gold smooth wedding band, sometimes engraved with a wreath of leaves and the initials of the bride and groom. It was virtually impossible to wear these rings while working so they were only used to show off when going to church or at holidays and festivals.

On pictures from that time, the hands were held in such a position that all the rings would be in seen on the picture. Such rings are also described in the book "Streeksieraden in Zeeland" (Dutch for "Regional jewelry in Zeeland") at page 76.

Antique Russian Brooch

Antique Russian Brooch

Russian antique brooch mandoline or domra with rose cut diamonds and enamel
Click here to get more info on this brooch.
 
An exquisite depiction of a Russian mandoline or domra brooch. Rendered in a combination of 14K red gold and silver and features diamond, ruby and pearl details as well as enamel inlay ornamentation. The body of the mandoline and the ribbon attached are executed in silver, set with a row of diamonds as are the soundhole and the decorations under the bridge. The top and bottom bridges are decorated with cabochon ruby bridgepins. Next to the chords on the body, two seed pearls and two blue enamel inlay details are added.

This antique jewel bears pre-revolution Russian hallmarks for 14K gold. Hallmarked in Transcaucasia, known because of the letter 'O' in the hallmark. This hallmark was used between 1908 and the Russian Revolution in 1917. Furthermore we found a French control mark that indicates that the piece has been imported into France....

If this piece could only talk... What amazing story would we hear.
