We were lucky enough to come across two additional signet rings this week! This beautiful ring was made during the Victorian Period! The Victorian Period is famous for its very rare & elegant hard to find designs! Seal Stamps occur in many different forms throughout history including Wax Seals, Pendants, and many other types of seals. Usually a flat surface would be engraved with a Seal, Crest or Initials for one to dip in ink or to be used as a wax seal on letters and other documents. In historical times, signet rings were often quite beautiful, but they were more than that - they had an important role in society. These rings were developed as an identification mark. Rather than signing their name on a document, people would use a signet ring to make their mark. The ring would be pressed into hot wax or soft clay, and would leave a distinctive impression that functioned as an official seal. Used by rulers and religious leaders, a signet ring could be used to mark a document, a doorway, or even to seal a tomb.

When someone saw the mark of the king, it proved authenticity. The seal could not be opened without damaging the identifying mark, making it difficult to tamper with. The gold work in this piece includes classic Victorian Era craftsmanship throughout!

The gold work has been beautifully hand carved into a unique shield crest seal that was most likely unique to a certain family or house. The seal is incredibly detailed with beautiful details as well as textured, and a smooth polished surface. The seal measures about 3/4" long by 1/2" wide.
