Ruben König Jewellery presents this beautiful Edwardian 'DEAREST' style ring. These would commonly have been given to Loved ones in wartime Britain although the concept dates back to the Georgian Era. The first letter of the stone type is what spells out the message, a really cute idea.
The gemstones may vary slightly from the screen, I always use the best quality stones available through my network of stone suppliers and I hand select from these. Please read the whole description to help you get a better understanding of this fantastic piece.

Information about different metal types:
Rose gold is typically alloyed with Copper to give the Gold a reddish hue.
18ct Rose Gold// Alloyed with copper to give a red tinge
18ct White Gold // Alloyed with Palladium & Zinc to give a whiter gold, this is typically rhodium plated to give a whiter finish, we do not plate our made to order rings as this will only wear off and is costly to replate, instead we use a whiter high palladium alloy.
18 parts Gold to 6 parts alloy, hence 18ct. Creating a ring that is denser than most other purities, both rich in colour and suitable for most people to wear everyday.
