Seller: whatisthing (1,185) 100%, Location: New York, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 324108084524 Please take a moment to read the entire description and view all of the photographs. * * * Presented is an antique seal ring. This is not my area of expertise, but it appears to be a medieval period Armenian ring. It is made of heavy weight silver and the top features a seal with an inscription of “Sargis” in Armenian. This perhaps refers to Saint Sargis. The inscription is a mirror image, the second picture shows the ring as it is and with the photo flipped so you can read it. There is ornate decoration above and below the inscription. All of the designs on the seal are hand-engraved, not cast. I have done some digging around for medieval rings and found several of similar form. This example seems to be more substantial and intricate than many I have seen, with nicer quality engraving (the ornate designs above and below the inscription are lovely). Unusual and interesting, if you know more about this please let us know! Marksnone DimensionsSeal is approximately 3/4” diameterRing size is hard to measure as it is slightly out of round. Rather large, probably approximately 9.5 to 10.Substantial weight of 21.3g ConditionGood condition with signs of age and use. The ring band is misshapen. Surface shows light wear and scratches and the silver has a dark patina that we did not touch. There may be faint wax residue in some of the letters on the seal. * * * ReturnsSales are final unless an item is found to be meaningfully misdescribed.
