I just stocked an exceptional antique bloodstone signet ring in the shop this afternoon - 14K yellow gold with an engraving in Arabic script. If you've ever done any hunting around for signet rings you know that bloodstone signets (heliotrope) are one of the most desirable (if not the most desirable) examples. This ring is unique because it is engraved to be used as a seal, with an English name transliterated into Arabic. If your name is Van Wyck, this might be a long-lost family ring!
