Huge Georgian Mens Signet Ring Intaglio Silver Gold Size 13.5

$ 5,580.00

The Count pulled his collar up and his hat down and stepped into the dark and windy night, he pulled giant gloves over his rough hands, encasing the ring that glinted on his finger. His family ring, his fathers ring; it was still warm from the wax seal he’d place on the letter moments ago, now he would ride like the wind to deliver it in time…

That’s how I like to think of the owner of the ring, or at least one of the owners. I suspect that this ring was made in the Georgian Era, in about 1820 or perhaps a bit earlier still, and so no doubt it’s seen more than one wearer in its over 200 years.

Hand crafted in 18 karat gold with a silver intaglio mounting it’s a very large ring, both in size and scale. The silver intaglio portrays a shield with a cross and five lions rampant topped with a helmet and a lion rampant holding a cross. The sides of the mounting are also engraved with shields and a swirling pattern. The motto on the ring reads: “Le Port Etle Supporteray” which I’ve translated through google as “Support the Port”, I’m not sure that this is correct, though.

This large ring measures 24.4 mm north to south and 21.6 mm across, it sits 6.2 mm off the finger and narrows to 13 mm wide at the back of the band. This ring is a size 13.5 and it is likely hollow and so would be impossible to resize. This ring weighs 25.5 grams, it is unmarked but has been acid tested to verify content.
