Sapphire Intaglio Ring
The octagonal Cornflower Blue Sapphire engraved with a Latin motto in a scroll which reads Aut Face Tace which may translate loosely as Observe And Stay Silent and above the motto is a cauldron on a ground line, engraved with three Stars and emerging from the bowl are a pair of feathered Wings. The Sapphire is more Blue than the photo, which gives the stone a slightly mauve hue. The unmarked Gold tests for 18k and is in good, little used condition. This is the perfect Precious Gem Pinky Ring that I have had in quite a while.
