The most charming antique Intaglio signet ring hand carved with the profile of a dragon on a shield shaped Sardonyx plaque. Circa 1870's, in 9ct yellow Gold, the whole is ornamented with hand carved decoration, in particular a Celtic knot themed shaping to the shoulders. Gorgeous, a dramatic and prestigious heritage ring. The art of Intaglio carving is a specialist one (and expensive nowadays) and so it is lovely to find this antique piece. The Sardonyx stone is layered and so the dragon depicted shows up with the darker terracotta hued layer making for a distinctive carved gem. The ring size is an 'M' or US '6' and sadly it's not possible to size.
