14 Karat Yellow Gold Tiffany Lion's Crest Signet Ring


( )


Signet rings date back at least to the second half of the thirteenth century, when the signet ring was a small seal used for formal or official purposes.  In most cases, it was used to substitute for a signature on official documents in a time when few people could write. Signet rings are still popular today, but worn for mainly for fashion.  This particular ring was made by Tiffany & Co around the 1890's.  Embossed into the ring, is a shield framing a standing lion on the top, while the bottom is solid lines alternating with lines of textured gold.  Lions typically stand for fierce courage and often used to represent a great warrior or chief.  There are engraved initials on the inside of the ring, along with a date of 7/9/90, and also a Tiffany & Co signature.  Currently, the ring is a size 9, but sizing is available upon request.
