A very fine quality Victorian seal signet ring in lovely condition. Set with a lovely example of Bloodstone carved as shield shape, ready to be incised with a personal or family crest, it is mounted in 15ct yellow gold (used solely in Britain between 1854-1932) on a flattering tapered band. Marked inside the band for Chester as 15ct Gold in 1876 it would have been a very stylish statement in its day. The maker's mark 'R.T.B' we haven't been able to trace as yet.
A ring size 'S' or '9' as is we could alter a wee bit to suit.
