Vintage 10K Yellow Gold Baby Signet Ring, Budlong Docherty & Armstrong, Blank, Size 00 #c610
For offer today I have this sweet little gold baby signet ring from Budlong, Docherty & Armstrong!
This adorable ring bears the trademark of the Budlong, Docherty & Armstrong jewelry company of Providence, Rhode Island. They were in the business of producing fine, precious metal jewelry from circa 1900's through the 1970's.
This beautiful little signet ring is comprised of fine 10K yellow gold. The face of the ring is oval in shape and is blank so it can be engraved and personalized. While the ring is quite tiny, it is very solid and substantial. The ring came to me in a lovely fluted presentation box with a heart edged top that lifts off. The box is clear with a fabric band that holds the ring in the center. It's the perfect piece to bestow on the parents of a new baby!
The ring measures about 7/16 inch in diameter, which equates approximately to a size 00. It weighs 1.0 grams. It is signed "BDA" for Budlong, Docherty & Armstrong and also hallmarked "10K" on the inside of the ring band.
This is an absolutely precious little gold signet ring! Engraved with the initials of a new baby, it would make a superb christening gift and a piece that a mother could wear forever on a chain or charm bracelet. The ring is of very high quality, solid and thick. It does have surface scratches from previous use and wear, but no damage whatsoever. The surface scratches are more apparent in my macro lens photos and really aren't as noticeable to the naked eye. They could be buffed out by a jeweler if desired. It's an enchanting little gold ring that is sure to delight!
