Antique Victorian 14K Gold Banded Agate Intaglio Mens Wax Seal Ring 10 –
Mid to late 1800s antique Victorian solid 14K rose gold chunky mens seal ring with a beautifully carved banded agate wax seal intaglio. It is jeweler tested and Guaranteed solid 14K rose gold….Not plated or filled. The top measures 13/16″ north to south by 5/8″ wide east to west x 5/16″ deep top to bottom. The band is a full 1/4″ wide and still thick; not worn down. It had a prior resize that still very strong and secure. Will hold for many decades to come.
The bezel setting is very well made with a solid back that has no dents or dings or scratches. The sides are hand chased with tiny Victorian millgrain style cut edges. Either during the making or at some point down the line one corner edge of the agate was polished down and beveled. This could have been done to accommodate the original owner’s choice of the large intaglio on the top. It does not detract when the ring is worn on the finger.
The hand crafting, gold smith work on this ring is very high quality. Strong, durable, well chased and well set. It is from the estate of the original owner and was kept in excellent condition. No dents or dings. No deep scratches, gauges or tears. No gold repair. The only alteration is the old resize. This is a gorgeous chunky very well-made mens ring for your antique Victorian gold jewelry collection or wax sealing.
