Ornamental signet ring made of high quality white gold, end of the 20th century.

A signet ring was an important symbol even in ancient times. Not only intended for sealing important documents, the signet ring also had a representative function and was often a sign of noble origin and social influence. In almost all eras, these rings were therefore reserved for the upper class alone. The present coat of arms ring shows itself in a classical shape. The ring is made of solid white gold and shows an oval field with an engraved coat of arms in the center. The diamond shaped escutcheon is divided into three parts and shows an eagle, two paws and a fleur-de-lis. A horned crown with two standards crowns the coat of arms. The ring was made towards the end of the last century and is very well preserved. Its simple design and high karat white gold give it a dignified and classic look. The exact provenance of the coat of arms is yet to be deciphered. The piece of jewelry came to us from Bonn and its petite size suggests that it was made for a slender lady or even a child.
