One of our favorite antique Art Deco-era wedding bands was a simple gold hoop engraved with a repeating chevron pattern. This is a stylized rendition of the wheat pattern, an American design motif dating from the 1800's that symbolizes abundance and prosperity. We loved the imagery and the unusual square shape of the band, so we're excited to be offering our own version as part of the 1909 collection. Choose from 14k white or yellow gold. About)). Here's our take on a common Art Deco-era wedding band style: a square-edged hoop engraved with a repeating chevron pattern on three sides. It was meant to reference wheat, which has been the food staple of humans for millenia. This type of wheat pattern in jewellery, not surprisingly, is meant to symbolize abundance and prosperity.

The so-called "wheat pattern" in jewellery is typically understood to symbolize a bountiful harvest. It's been speculated that wheat carving and engraving on rings emerged during the Renaissance, symbolizing fertility. We especially love this kind of abstracted, but recognizable, wheat pattern engraving—it's repetitive to the point where the plant's image is transformed into pure ornament. It's decorative, but an echo of the ancient symbol remains. Colour: metallic
