Antique "8-21-17" 1910s 18K yellow gold wedding band or stacking ring

A pitch-perfect 18K wedding band engraved for a wedding on August 21st, 1917. This couple was married just a few months after the U.S. entered WWI. This ring is thick and beautifully made with an almost tubular body: a bit like an early version of the modern "comfort" fit. Lovingly engraved inside "L to A" and the wedding date. Excellent condition. A luxurious band.
