Victorian Mermaid Intaglio Signet Ring

$2,500.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

A fine quality antique signet ring, carved with an English heraldic seal. This particular crest was adopted by the Byrne family, and depicts a mermaid with hand mirror and hair comb. To the inner band is an inscription that reads: "To William Grant Rose Esq. as a token of my affection, from Rachel Byrne." So it seems like Rachel had her own family crest added to this signet ring gift... most unusual.
