I could have worn it on the pinky, like a gentleman does. I could have shaken hands and shown it off, tilting it toward the light just so. I could have slipped it onto a chain and left it hang there for the world to see so obviously.
“Victoria, what’s on your forefinger?”
“Bloodstone, my dear.”
“You sure know how to dress for an occasion.”
“I certainly like to think so.” I let the ring sit there, on the forefinger resting on my hip. It wasn’t asking for attention but somehow it was getting it anyway. Honestly, I wasn’t about to argue, fate is as fate does.
This Victorian bloodstone signet ring was handcrafted in England around 1890. It’s an antique piece with an oval flat-cut bloodstone at the center, bezel set in 18 karat gold. The bloodstone measures 11 x 9.4 x 2.4 mm. The ring face measures 13.3 x 11.3 x 3 mm off the finger and the band width is 3.6 mm at the back. This ring is a size 5.5 US and it weighs 5.4 grams. It bears the crown mark for England and the gold purity mark, “18”. The maker’s mark reads, “S.B&S”.
A ring like this has power, it has glory, it has that something you just can’t quite put your finger on. I think it’s time you got to wear it.
