Achieving the perfect blend of everyday functionality and grace is rather difficult, particularly in something as humble looking as a walking cane. The Gold Vermeil Balmoral Cane challenges this notion with its beautiful construction and loads of elegance. It uses 18 K gold over its 925 K silver handle. Layout of the handle is further accentuated by intricately carved details that will catch everybodys attention. Its robust shaft is made of walnut hardwood. The warm wooden finish of the shaft perfectly complements opulence of the golden handle. Made in Italy by expert cane-makers, there is nothing modest about this caneit radiates a regal, almost snobbish, stature in the world of walking canes.
