Behold, my discerning comrades, a vintage-style spectacle for your discerning digits – the 9ct Gold basket St. George ring! Picture this: the gallant St. George, not on a coin but an exquisite stamped Gold disc, taking centre stage on your finger. Currently a snug fit at a UK size K, but worry not, for I'm on a quest to summon more suppliers and bring forth a broader range of sizes. A warning in advance – resizing shall dance only one step in either direction, so choose your size wisely. And if your heart yearns for a different size, holler at me; I'm here to make your fingers as happy as a cat in a sunbeam.

This ring is not lightweight in both design and substance, tipping the scales at 3.65g of sheer opulence. A London hallmark ensures you're not just wearing a ring; you're donning a certified piece of history. The St. George medallion takes pride of place on the front, with a charming basket detail gracing each side of the 9ct Gold shank. It's not just a ring; it's a visual ode to a legendary tale – a tale of St. George astride his noble steed, slaying dragons like a boss.

Now, let's delve into the saga of St. George, the OG dragon slayer, and the Patron Saint of England. Born in the third century AD, this Roman soldier faced death with a defiant spirit, refusing to renounce his Christian faith. Legend has it that he joined English knights in the Battle of Antioch in 1098, a vision chronicled by historian William of Malmesbury. St. George's shrine at Lydda, the supposed spot where Perseus saved Princess Andromeda from a sea serpent, elevated him to legendary status. The 13th century saw him wielding the red cross of the crusader and, by 1348, Edward III declared him England's patron saint, complete with the Order of the Garter – the VIP pass of medieval England. The Chapel of St. George at Windsor Castle became the holy grail of this knightly order, and their insignia proudly flaunts St. George in full dragon-slaying glory.

And because I adore you all, revel in the glory of free UK shipping! Let this ring journey to your doorstep, bringing with it the spirit of St. George, a dash of history, and the undeniable allure of a golden basket fit for your majestic fingers. 🏰💍🐉✨
