This exquisite Lapis Lazuli signet ring was made in London in 1978. It boasts a wonderful, blue Lapis Lazuli on the front with beautiful, natural patterning.  

Lapis Lazuli has been prized since ancient times for its vibrant colouring and was considered a stone of the powerful and divine. Its name comes from the Persian word “Lazhuward” meaning “blue” and the Arabic word “Lazaward” meaning “Heaven” or “sky”. 

The stone is set in a robust 9ct gold gallery with intricate, scrolling patterning engraved down each shoulder. It would make a grand statement piece and is fully hallmarked within the shank.
