Georgian "I Respond" Tassie Seal Signet Ring
with Harp in High Karat Gold
* * SOLD * *
An especially rare and ephemeral Georgian era signet ring, mwhose turquoise glass intaglio seal is carved with an image of a harp, surrounded by the phrase “je reponds á qui me touche:” I respond to every touch. This beautiful old Tassie seal is still partnered with its original high karat gold ring mount. The bezel that holds it is embellished with a halo of dainty granulated spheres. The ring's split shoulders are topped with shapely, applied epaulettes that are decorated with fine hand-engraving. The slender ring shank is also entirely decorated. This ring is delicate and very lightweight. A real heartbreaker, for the radically vulnerable among us!
