A classic English antique 9ct gold signet ring in a sleek geometric design.
This is a fairly small finger sized ring that may have once been worn by an older child and is perfect for the pinky finger. The square face has reeded motifs at the top and bottom with the design carried around to the shoulders. It is engraved with a floral motif in one corner with the opposite corner left blank for an engraved monogram if you wanted. The ring comes in the new black octagonal ring box as shown.
The ring is two tone, sterling silver on the inside and 9ct gold on the outside. This is an old manufacturing technique used for engraved rings. It is similar to rolled gold except thicker, a sheet of gold is mechanically bonded onto the top a sheet of silver so you end up with a gold fronted ring which, is more affordable than a solid gold ring, and it will withstand significantly more wear than a rolled gold /gold filled ring - you would have to wear the engraving off completely before the silver would show through.
