This is a nice medieval silver signet ring, dating to the 15th - 16th century AD. The bezel is engraved with a large Scottish Saltire, with the hoop and sides of the ring profusely engraved. Such a ring would have been used by a merchant to seal and authenticate transactions. A nice antique example in good wearable condition.
