Antique 10K Gold Bird and Flower Engraved Wedding Band. Made about 1900, this beautiful wide cigar band ring is engraved with a repeating pattern of birds and flowering branches. The Victorians loved symbolism and swallow (likely the birds here) represented faithfulness as they always return home. The flowers may represent forget-me-nots, which symbolize true love. The ring is hand engraved on the inside EM in script.
