Edwardian Carnelian Signet Ring

$1,850

Signet seal rings were traditionally engraved with a crest, motto, symbol or rebus unique to the owner. When pressed into hot wax, they formed images that sealed a letter and served as the owner's signature. Over the course of 19th century, the signet ring evolved from a functional piece of jewelry i.e. a family crest used to seal letters with wax, to a less formal piece of jewelry designed for everyday wear. This WWI era signet ring - hallmarks date it to 1914 - is fashioned in in gold with a carnelian slab.
