Edwardian Era Intaglio Carved Greyhound Signet Ring in 18k Gold
* * SOLD * *
A weighty, Edwardian-era signet ring, modeled in 18k rose gold, featuring a beautifully-rendered greyhound intaglio. This dignified pup wears an alert expression; his ears are perked, and he sports a collar with a prominent bolt ring or key. The oval face of the ring is finished with a mirror polish— our canine friend's deep, stippled texture stands in contrast. This ring is the classic signet shape, with a smooth, tapering profile. A series of raised beads decorate its shoulders. Its half-round shank tapers toward the base. We love the quiet strength of this animal talisman. It bears a full set of English hallmarks, indicating manufacture in Chester, in the year 1915. Hounds in heraldry typically symbolize fidelity and vigilance. Though originally intended for a man, this ring is well-suited to all genders.
