Antique 15ct gold bloodstone signet ring made in 1900

Signet rings go as far back to ancient Egypt over 4,000 years ago, and use of the term “signet” or “seal”, is from the Latin “sigillum” (seal), diminutive of signum (sign) and dates back at least to the second half of the thirteenth century. This antique signet ring is set with bloodstone which is dark green with flecks of red giving it its name. From the quartz family, this crypto-crystalline material was often carved with intaglios to press into warm wax to “seal” an envelope.
