An unusual 15ct gold seal that was made circa 1860-1880. It is a double sided swivel design set with a carnelian on one side and a bloodstone on the other. Each of the agates has an intaglio of a family crest. One is a castle within a shield with a gantlet above. The other is a shield with two hands outreached within and a griffin above. Below it says “Perseverando” meaning “Persevere and do well”. The bloodstone opens to reveal a glazed locket section. Above is a woven gold knot design. It would look amazing worn on a mid length gold belcher chain.
