The Devil Take Love Intaglio Signet Ring in 14k Gold & Sterling Silver - Custom
* * SOLD * *
An original Poor Mouchette design, featuring a highly-detailed casting of a rare Georgian-era Tassie seal. This seal is inscribed with a tough sentiment— Le Diable Emporte L' Amour : "the devil take love," or, colloquially, "to hell with love." The accompanying intaglio image shows cupid riding atop the devil's shoulders, holding his little bow aloft . . . if you ask me, he seems happy enough to make the trip!
Our 'to hell with love' seal is cast in solid sterling silver, and gem-set in a heavy 14k gold setting. This hand-carved setting has smooth sides, a tapering profile, and a deep bat-wing-edge bezel. The 8 claw-like prongs of the festooned bezel reach up to secure the gem. The fine details of the intaglio carving are brought out with a carefully oxidized finish. The gold setting is satin finished. All parts of this ring are made by human animals in Portland, Oregon.
This is a big, bold, extra-heavy jewel, made to weather the storms, and well-suited to both men and women.
