Half a Crown?
The best thing about this sterling silver ring is the fact that it certainly creates a wonderful talking point and really ignites your imagination. What is the value of this coin to someone at the time of circulation? was it a huge part of their wages or was it pocket change for a wealthy family? what would this half crown have paid for?
For an example a ‘skilled seamstress’ in Victorian times would have earned approx 7 Shillings a day. There are 2 shillings and sixpence in half a crown.
However work was not constant and guaranteed in addition they had to provide all their own materials.
With this in mind, and the fact that a single room in a relatively poor area of London would have cost approx a crown a week. It seems that a half crown is a great deal of money for the era it was in use.
