"Cecile" Chanel Antique Button Ring
Are you looking for an easy to wear, comfortable, everyday ring? But you also want something really stylish, unique and high end. Then your search is over! Look no further than this beauty.
I've transformed this 1920's antique Chanel button, into a really beautiful statement ring. This button was originally worn on the sleeve cuff of a waist length Chanel woollen jacket. So you'd actually be wearing a ring with a button that is over 100 years old. Isn't that amazing! Who needs diamonds, when you could have a button that has probably been gracing outdoor Parisian cafes long before you were even born. Imagine the things this button has seen and heard in it's 100 years.
Because the button has a lovely dome to it, I chose to make a lower profile setting, so the button is not sitting too high on the finger line. The setting is a clean, classic rub over setting, that allows the button to be the centre of attention on your finger. The band/shank is really substantial. It's 10mm wide, so you have no fear of it bending or warping with everyday wear. I've put a slight curve on the edge of the band, so that it's super comfortable.
Hand crafted in solid sterling silver, I've finished it off with a high polish.
This stunner is a size 0 or 7 1/4.
Your jewellery journey begins with a piece of hand crafted wearable history by Porsha Bella.
*Please note, the buttons used in all of my creations are second hand, antique or vintage, therefore they will show signs of their previous lives. Some scratches, tiny dents, some enamel wear and even tarnishing. I cannot guarantee the quality or longevity of these buttons. In some cases there can be colour variations, and plating lift during the polishing process, this is unavoidable. I'm unable to refund or replace buttons that break or crack. Although I do put every button through rigorous testing to do my best to ensure their longevity.
Unlike costume jewellery, my jewellery is professionally hand crafted using traditional Goldsmith techniques and genuine, solid precious metals, so therefore you can wear your Porsha Bella pieces whilst swimming, showering and washing. These activities shouldn't damage or discolour the precious metals. I never take my jewellery off. However, you may need to polish your jewellery a little more frequently if you want that shiny, brand new look. If you treat your Porsha Bella creation, like the treasure of history it is, you should have an heirloom piece that will stand the test of time. If you have any concerns about how to care for this piece, then please reach out to me and I can help you with tips on getting a long and happy wear life out of it.
*Designer buttons have no affiliation with the brand or fashion house of their origin. I do my best to ensure all designer buttons are genuine and from a reputable source. Porsha Bella designer button creations are not sold on behalf of or in conjunction with the brand. The designer buttons are second hand, vintage or antique, with all rights removed and protected by the second hand market.
