Antique Egyptian Revival Bloodstone Signet Ring with Temple Asps in 10k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A tough and dandy, early-twentieth-century signet ring, made in 10k yellow gold and featuring a pair of asps that twine up its elaborately carved shoulders. These snake friends stand guard to either side of the ring's bloodstone gem— the high-polished, rectangular bloodstone is beautifully figured, with an even deep green field and well-defined, bright-red dots and lashes that give it its common name. It is held securely in a series of low-profile, tab-style prongs. This ring is fierce, lovely, and well-suited to all genders, but it was originally intended for a man.
US 9 1/2. This ring can be re-sized; to add custom sizing to your order, visit our services page.
Bloodstone measures approx 16.5 x 12.2 mm; ring face measures approx 18.9 x 20.8 mm; shank measures approx 17.5 mm at the shoulder, and 4.7 mm at the base.
