9ct Masonic signet ring

£895.00

A superb example of a gentlemen’s Masonic signet ring with carved stone centre piece. Crafted using 9ct gold with the masonic emblem of the iconic square and compass engraved in white agate. The ring features a bear claw design to the shoulders giving a really strong presence to the ring. Extremely unique we have not had the please of owning a better looking masonic ring. The engraving has been expertly carved so that it penetrates the white band revealing the red carnelian beneath giving spectacular depth to the stone.
