A superb, simple vintage signet ring featuring a stunning incised lion, with a raised paw, above a ribbon'd motto stating 'Nil Sine Deo' in an ever so slight color of blushing gold. 

With reeded shoulders, this delightful example is a lovely vintage example, perhaps from the 1960's. I've included some images of a wax impression of the carving, to express the details and subtly of the intaglio. 

 

Materials and Features: 14k gold

Age/Origin:  Georgian-inspired, c. 1907

Measurements: size 4, 5.5 grams

Marks: illegible hallmark. 

Condition: Excellent condition. Minor associated age wear. 

A note about Signet Rings:

Signet rings have been around since ancient civilization, worn as protective amulets, for betrothal or as an early form of branding and currency. But, primarily, they were used to seal deals (literally) and communicate rank. By the Victorian era, signet rings had become a staple of the well-dressed gentlemen, and part of the revivals of Renaissance and ancient jewelry. Signet rings remained a staple through the Deco and wartime eras, and maintained a high level of quality and elegance. 

Please view and inspect any photos closely. We endeavor to fully disclose all condition information clearly and concisely, however, please note that what qualifies as excellent condition for historical jewelry differs from modern and contemporary pieces; please take the age of the piece into account when examining the piece. Minor age wear is typical and to be expected for antique and vintage jewelry. Unless otherwise stated, gemstones have not been officially graded for color, clarity, or treatment by GIA; any information provided is our own educated, professional assessment.
