# J7. A unique man's ring: size 13.25. Low k gold: around 9k. Consisting of 4 English Regency period - late 18th early 19th century -letter seals, appearing to be amethyst, citrine, an undetermined blue and an undetermined white stone. Each seal, meant to be pressed into wax is different in decoration and text. The amehyst seal says "bonsoir" and the image depicts a candle stick with lit candle about to be snuffed; the citrine seal states: "Responde Vitm (?)" with the image of a dove carrying a letter; the blue seal states: "may you be happy" and we cannot make out the text for the white seal. Of course all the text is written backwards meant to be pressed into sealing wax. An uncommon form for a man's ring. Price: $1,500.00.
