This true Art Deco period signet ring is hallmarked for Chester in 1934 and is crafted in an elegant cylindrical shape. Made from old 9ct rose gold it has the subtle lovely reddish hue that is characteristic of antique gold.
Fabulously streamlined the face is set in a slim curved baguette of glossy black onyx overlaid with a charming rose gold initial 'M' in a medieval Old English typeface. Slim split shoulders with gold bead accents and a slender band complete this dainty geometric beauty.
One for the ladies this fab ring is a high Deco classic with a wonderful curved profile and great finger coverage. As an added bonus gold jewellery hallmarked in Chester is particularly sought after, the assay office closed in 1962 resulting in these historically hallmarked pieces becoming particularly desirable.
