BELAIS Antique 18K WG Wedding Band SZ 6 1/4
If only the finest antique white gold ring will do for your wedding and you wear a size 6, 6.25 or 6.5, you're in luck. This beauty by the legendary Belais brothers should fit you, because nobody's fingers are exactly the same size all the time; they vary up to half a size with temperature and time of day -- and ring sizing equipment yields different results, too, depending on whether it's wood, plastic or metal.

Fresh from an Arizona estate, this band is a superb example of why Belais jewelry is so esteemed and collectible. Its intricate pattern, executed in high relief, is a graceful motif that looks to me like tiny stylized leaves nestling close together in a garland. It measures 2 mm wide, weighs 2.4 grams and definitely dates from the Art Deco era or a bit earlier, since the company crashed with the stock market in 1929. It's in lovely condition, showing only minimal, age-appropriate wear.

Along with the BELAIS 18K stamp that appears on the interior is the name Horton, signifying either the jeweler who sold it proudly or the surname of the happy bridal couple. This is an unusual touch, adding extra charm to the ring's history.
