*This Ring Can Be Resized.

Though it was never actually owned by a knight, this magnificent ring is as grant and majestic as those medieval warriors. The first knights fought for Charlemagne, a Frankish king who ruled in the 700s. Charlemagne gave land to his best knights in return for their service, which became a common practice across Europe that lasted for centuries. 

Knights are best known for the hundreds of rings that comprise their infamous chainmail but did you know that they were also down with finger rings as well? Nobles and knights—not to mention royalty—would rarely appear in public without tons of rings to denote their status. And the desire to impress with jewels knew absolutely no bounds. A famed medieval author claimed to have seen “knights and citizens fall into scantily clad nakedness through presumptuous spending on ornaments.” 

Gifts of jewelry came from patrons, lovers, or marked special milestones like being knighted. But this elegant ring is ever so Edwardian, and we are glad it was made at the turn of the 20th century. That buttery gold band with its masterfully crafted 8-prong setting is fierce and fun. Not to mention that twinkling European cut diamond only possible thanks to the technological advances of later eras. This would be a fitting offering to your beloved to mark the most memorable of milestones.
