The deceptively simple buckle ring.  This stylistically classic design has been a popular choice for centuries, dating back as far as the early 1800’s.  

Popularity of this significant piece of jewellery surged when Queen Victorian began wearing her own buckle ring.  Apparently, Victoria wore the ring to represent her membership in the Order of the Garter.  This organisation was founded in 1348 and still exists today.  It is the most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain and the members are most often recognised for their public service.  Sometimes, these rings also took the form of mourning jewellery, or more accurately, remembrance jewellery.  After the death of a loved one, often the remaining family would wear a buckle ring to symbolise the never-ending connection to the deceased.  The unbroken circle of the band provided a much needed visual reminder of the enduring memory.
