A fine antique 9ct Gold Bloodstone signet ring.
This charming antique signet ring was crafted during the Edwardian era, in the year 1908. It's a unique and substantial piece featuring a traditional shield-shape Bloodstone panel and beautiful, decorative setting of 9ct Yellow Gold.
This beautiful ring is made from a rich buttery-coloured 9ct Gold, which combined with the lovely weight of the piece gives it a real feeling of quality. It has gorgeous over-sized hallmarks, and a thick grooved band.
Bloodstone is a dark green hard stone gem flecked with red, and was often used to produce seals and fobs during the 1800's. The seals were worn as rings or fob pendants, primarily by men as a item of status & wealth, and were engraved so the item stamped a family crest, emblem or motto to "seal" letters and important documents. As you can see here this signet ring has been left blank so it's history and original owner remains a mystery!
This ring is a glorious example of Edwardian jewellery, full of authentic antique charm. It would make a fantastic, memorable gift for a special birthday or graduation, or a really lovely dress ring.
It would have been originally designed as a gents piece, although it can easily sized up or down to fit a ladies hand too.
