Some examples seen in the last photo - thanks for stopping by! Interesting 14k gold signet ring with shield shaped face and floating raised cartouche with the initial "R". The shank is made of three reticulated linear bands all the way around with banded shoulders.
I love the highlights of robin's egg blue, green and black enamel. There is a foreign hallmark on the outside of the ring shank, common in some European countries, but I could not identify it. It tests at 14k though. It is a size 8, sizable by your local jeweler. The shield shape is 18mm by 11mm.
It is pretty lightweight, weighing 2.2 grams, the gold work is quite thin but it covers a large area so it is eye catching. All my pieces are preowned and in estate condition. When you catch the signet face in a reflection you can see a few scratches due to the mirrored finish there. There is pitting and spotting to the enamel but it still all presents as its intended color.The loss of the enamel does not reach to the underlying gold so it is still complete to the eye and quite vibrant. The band is a little out of round and it is thin so it feels blunt on the edges and even flexes slightly with pressure but it seems sturdy enough for the gentle wear that these very old pieces require. It is a very unique and interesting piece, fun to wear and stack. But as with all my estate pieces - Please note this is not a mint condition item. Thanks so much for looking at my items!
