The history behind it: this ring is from Chester, England, likely from circa 1897! In the 1700s, the British government mandated that every jeweler must mark their rings with the year it’s from, which makes this an incredible way to know all about the ring, and gives it more value! The maker's mark "T&S" traces the origin of this piece.
