A delightful vintage rose gold signet ring in a petite size perfect for a little finger ring or as a Sweet 16 gift.  The top of the ring is in a shield shaped design and the recipient's initials could be engraved to make the gift even more personal and special.  The head of the ring sits on flared shoulders to a D shaped band.  The Chester hallmark office is partially blurred but the makers' mark of HG&S Ltd is clear, and represents Henry Griffith & Sons Ltd, whose marks were registered with the Chester until 1907 and the Birmingham Assay Office till until 1910.  Using this information, together with the style of the ring, we assess the age to be 1899. Finger size 4.25 (US/Canada), I (UK/Australia).
