This fantastic and bold nonbinary signet ring sports excellent black and white enamel, which accents the stark central agate stone. The lithe inscription on the interior memorializes Jacob Clements. Fanciful scrolling of the enamel work is mirrored by the natural striation of the agate, recalling the rococo revival of the 18th century. So fine an early Victorian signet will be a mainstay in whatever collection this treasure joins.
