1912 Ring & The Passengers On The Titanic
by: Anonymous

Good Afternoon Mike,

it might be worth mentioning on the jewelry appraisal form, (if you decide to get the ring appraised) that the year, 1912 was also the year of the Titanic sinking. It being a wedding band and a token of everlasting love, the year 1912 is very special especially for collector's of Titanic memorabilia (although it wasn't actually worn by a passenger on the Titanic) and the friends and relatives of the Passengers on the Titanic...

2012 is the Titanic's 100th year anniversary.

Best Wishes,

Hi Mike,

the only thing we can tell you really, as we don't have the benefit of a photo, is that the year inscribed in the ring - 1912 in the history of jewelry, falls within the Edwardian era.

Much of the work in the Edwardian period which was very short period style, was in the 'Garland Style' - in the form of extremely delicate flowers and leaves.

Fine millegrain, tiny bead work, and pierced and engraved metals gave the jewelry the appearance of open, airy, and romantic lace and embroidery. Platinum started being used widely either over 18K gold or on its own, so the look was primarily monochromatic with rose, mine, and European cut diamonds, often accented by natural pearls. Platinum enhanced the radiance of the diamonds.

I wouldn't hesitate to have this ring appraised through Antique Jewelry Investor. I think it's worth it. The Appraisal Form to get you started can be found HERE

Best Regards
