Antique Australian 18ct Yellow Gold Family Crest Intaglio Signet Ring Circa 1900

Impressive and early 18ct gold signet ring we believe is Australian in manufacture and dating to around the turn of the century to early Edwardian era circa 1900.

The oval face of the ring features a Griffin erased atop what we believe is plinth resembling a letter ’A’, to engraved thick and wide shoulders to a very thick and solid shank.  Weighing a very substantial 11.74 grams this ring is lush and hefty on the finger.

Stamped with ‘18c.’ and the makers name ‘Coventry’ in the Australian style we believe this ring was made by manufacturing jeweller Alex. Coventry of 1 Cecil Place Prahran Victoria. 

Sadly we cannot attribute the family crest but a ring of this quality and gold weight would have b been commissioned by a person of means.
