This beautifully made Victorian signet ring, with a Heliotrope or Bloodstone set in 15ct yellow Gold, it is a little piece of history. Designed in the classical style, the shoulders have a naturalistic design, echoing the Romanesque style that was in vogue towards the end of the 19th century. The striking oblong Bloodstone has some very attractive red Haematite inclusions and if desired it is possible to personalise with a family crest or monogram. Such a gorgeous historical wink!
The ring is slender, so would suit a small hand, the ring size an 'M' or '6.25' but could be altered quite easily. The bloodstone is 8mm x 10mm.
