Victorian 18ct Gold Masonic Bloodstone Signet Ring – SOLD

This is a fantastic antique bloodstone masonic signet ring modelled in 18ct yellow gold. The bloodstone, engraved with the recognisable square and compass of the freemasons, exhibits good flashes of red. A Victorian ring, the bloodstone appears totally original with no apparent signs of being a replacement. The rub over setting is smooth with the bloodstone sitting ever so slightly proud, a very tricky setting requiring an expert craftsman.
