This is a nice late medieval silver-gilt signet ring, dating to the 15th - 16th century. The oval bezel is engraved with a cruciger type device, personalized with a letter 'R'. The border is engrailed with 14 points. The ring also bears decorated shoulders, with floral sprays. This is a nice ring that would have once belonged to a merchant, used to seal and authenticate his letters and transactions. the ring displays some wear to the gilding but is otherwise intact and in good wearable condition.
