A signet ring is the ultimate, wear-forever jewelry staple. This ring is wonderfully proportioned, with an ever so slightly elongated round face, tapered shoulders, a solid frame and low, wearable profile. It has not been engraved, but could easily be marked with initials or a family crest by your jeweler, if you wished. 

Signet rings are one of the earliest examples of jewelry, with some examples dating as far back as 3500 B.C. Originally, most signets were produced from carved stones. During the Bronze age, a shift in technology and design occurred and signets made entirely from metal began to be crafted in addition to stone and gem intaglios.

While typically no longer used to mark seals on legal documents, signet rings today tend to represent family lines (often with crests or insignia) and/or to mark the initials of the wearer or a loved one. I personally like the look of an un-engraved signet - the bright, reflective face of the ring is so striking and makes a perfect wear-with-everything jewel.

More details:

Central portion measures 11.2mm tall and 8.0mm wide.  Low profile setting sits just 1.1mm off the finger. At back of ring, narrowest part of ring shank measures 1.7mm.

Ring size 5.75 / UK L 1/2. If needed, this ring may be sized either up or down a few sizes by your jeweler. 

Very good condition. There are a few fine scratches in the surface of the ring; these could be polished out by your jeweler, if you chose.
