August Antique Silver Signet Ring
Signet rings have graced the fingers of humankind for centuries upon centuries. Whether to affix one’s personal mark upon a papyrus or to emboss the sealing wax of a love letter, the signet ring has played a role in cultures all over the world.
Rendered of 835 silver*, a rectangular matrix with cut-off corners boldly displays the hand engraved initials of “C M T” against a smooth background of silver. Sections of each letter overlap with parts of the others in a monogram. Flourishes and scrolling designs appoint each side and shoulder of the august circa 1880 ring in an ornate play of visual movement.
Measurements: 11/16 of an inch (1.7 cm) in length north to south on the hand and rises 1/8 of an inch (0.4 cm) in height off the finger. Weight of 9.2 grams (5.9 dwt).
Ring Size: US 6-1/2 (UK M-1/2; Int. Dia. 17; Euro 53.5 mm; Japan 13) and can be easily sized to fit most. Ring sizing information.
Hallmarks: “835” (European silver hallmark).
Condition: Very good; heavy patina to crevices; light overall wear commensurate with age and use.
Date & Origin: Circa 1880 and is European in origin.
*Note: The number refers to the purity of the silver with sterling silver as 925 parts out of 1000. Silver alone is too soft to use for jewelry. It is typically mixed with other metals (such as copper) to improve its strength, luster and to reduce tarnishing.
