We procure authentic Victorian perfume buttons and add our hammered sterling band to create these one of a kind rings. Each button is hand selected and will vary in style. Adjustable band fits most.

The story goes like this, Perfume Buttons were designed and made in the States in the early 1800’s, incorporating fabric as part of their design – usually velvet. The ladies of the day wore these buttons on their dresses, putting their fragrance on them rather than running the risk of staining their clothing.

During the Civil War, the ladies would take a perfumed button off their dresses, and give it to their loved one, sending him into war with a romantic memento.
