Carved Carnelian Intaglio Signet Ring

Carved Carnelian Intaglio Signet Ring

Sep 14, 2021 | Gemstone Settings, Signet, Cabochon cut gemstone

Our client wanted a pair of rings with some custom Kanji characters inspired by Japanese Anime. One was for a character named ‘Pein’. We custom made a large signet ring in sterling silver and set a flat Carnelian gemstone into it. The objective was to make them look ancient and completely handmade. Next we slowly engraved the gemstone with the character. The second ring we made has the character for ‘Steel’. Carved gemstone signets, especially Carnelian, are one of the oldest styles of ring and were used millennia’s ago to ‘sign’ or seal official documents. Intaglio rings make a relief impression on wax.
