Many of my signets recently sold so I thought I'd pull a few from my inventory stores to offer up.
Richly patina'd warm rosy gold signet ring with beautiful leaf detail at each open work shoulder. The signet face is solid (not hollow like many from the period) with a shield shape and engraved initials - I believe MD? Could also be re-engraved if desired.

Antique box is not included.

French hallmarks for 14k gold. It somehow manages to have both a rosy and buttery glow, from age and patina to the old alloys used back then. It's warmer, unlike the more vibrant pink rose gold of today. It's beautiful.

Wear to the engraving but a very beautiful fabrication. There are no dark spots to the gold, it was just difficult to photograph at some angles when it reflects its surroundings.

Size 8 1/4. The shield face is 13 by 11mm. It weighs a sturdy 4.95 grams.


Please note that all my pieces are pre-owned and in estate condition. They will have patina, surface wear, a few small nicks. These pieces may also have evidence of a sizing, some build up around the stones and / or inclusions seen under magnification, typical for antique pieces. I have mentioned any glaring issues above and they are all still wearable.
But - Please note due to age, this piece is not in mint condition. Pictures also serve as part of the description and condition report so please utilize the zoom feature which will magnify any wear significantly more than what is visible to the eye while wearing : )
