Victorian 14k Gold Banded Agate Intaglio Signet Ring with Shield

About the Item

Set in 14k gold, the banded agate intaglio ring is hand-carved with a unique image: a shield topped by a knight’s helmet and a plume of feathers. The shield contains a six-pointed star and a half-moon, a wonderfully theatrical image. The banded agate has a pale-white lavender milky surface that exposes a pale peach when carved into. The overall effect is a symmetrical and intriguing intaglio. The agate is placed in a 14k gold mount with a band that divides and bisects, creating a very architectural mount that’s clean and minimal and mirrors the intaglio—a very well balanced ring. The ring has two hallmarks that we weren’t able to identify. One appears to be the profile of a man in a hexagon; the other is a lozenge shape with a helmet between a 3 and the letter K. We are able to identify the ring as European, but are unsure of its country of origin—perhaps Austrian, Hungarian, or Czech. The ring weighs 10.6 grams. The agate is 5/8” x 13/16”, and the face of the ring including the mount measures 1” x 11/16”. Ring size 7.5, the ring has the ability to be resized.

  • 14K Rose Gold Victorian Blue Banded Agate Ring
    Located in Venice, CA
    This is an elegant Victorian era ring, featuring the popular Scottish stone of banded agate. The banded agate is smooth and could be engrave with a personal sign or emblem, potentially making it a signet ring. The oval and smooth banded agate gemstone measures 3/8 by 5/8 of an inch. It is a very dark blue color, and the sides, where one can see the rings of the agate, is a darker black color. The band on the ring is banded also, with a nice texture that enhances the qualities of the stone. The rose gold color is a nice choice to set off the darker and moody gemstone. The ring is a size 4.5 but could be easily resized. Feels great to the touch making this a great everyday ring. The ring remains unmarked but has been acid tested to 14K gold. Weighs 3.65 grams.
