Spoon rings were first made in 17th century England as wedding rings by servants who could not afford expensive precious metals. Servants would steal a silver spoon from their master and have it turned into a wedding ring to be worn on the thumb of their love. Servants who were caught were sentenced for "stealing a silver spoon". An expression of love would be punished with a sentence of 7 years imprisonment overseas. When they arrived some of the servants are recorded as having met skillful prisoners who could create these beautiful rings and they would take yet another spoon from an officer or their new master to present their love with a precious token. Ever since these times, spoon rings have been a timeless and unique gift of love, a wonderful piece of heritage not forgotten This lovely ring has been hand crafted from a beautifully simply designed sterling silver spoon which unusually utilises the spoon bowl and spirals the handle as detail to the front. The spoon has a full set of hallmarks to the outside, makers mark John and William F Deakin, Lion Passant, Assayed in Sheffield in 1927. It will come packaged with a hand made unbleached cotton bag featuring a hand painted little bird
