Late Victorian 18k Gold Shield Signet Ring
DATE: Victorian, c.1900
A stunning (and BIG) late Victorian signet ring, of unusual minimalist design. The octagonal face bears a cool intaglio shield with great textured detail (I think the plain slit in the middle is for a monogram engraving...). It's modelled in 18k yellow gold, with a maker's mark ECL'd - a great quality substantial piece.
Head: 2.0 x 1.6cm - Width of band: 3.1mm
Stamped 18k gold
Excellent, with light antique patina
