What do we have here then? Well let me be the bearer of good news. She's a beautifully crafted signet ring dating to 1919 engraved with a cheeky little monkey banging a drum...I KNOW.
It's so col to come across these unusual and bespoke old engravings. What did this mean to the wearer? There is a scroll directly underneath the drum which could have given us a clue but it has worn with age and is now illegible. The meaning is forever held within the face of this ring.
It would be a pleasure to keep hold of this ring but she doesn't fit any of my fingers and I'm loathe to resize it for my own collection, however, she can be resized so please send me a message to discuss.

Beautiful antique signet ring
All of my pieces are at the very least pre-loved and most of them are vintage or antique. This item is not brand new and as such, will not look brand new. Please expect signs of wear to include kinks in links, surface wear to gold, scuffs to stones and accept this as part and parcel of buying sustainable jewellery. I will be as clear as I can with item descriptions and aim to make sure you are aware of any potential defects before you buy.
