Beautiful antique wax stamp/seal with a sophisticated smooth simple design on the honey caramelized brown with tints of orange carnelian stone in a rectangular shape. It's then surrounded by a thick yellow gold border of luxurious swirls which complements the warm tones of the carnelian. Its handheld section is a stunning detailed long 9K yellow gold handle with lots of classical shapes, twists, and lines, and a loop so that it can be worn as a pendant. This retro piece of history very valuable, and rare, as wax stamps are mainly used only by royalty and difficult to come across. This antique piece is a special item, bound to make a useful and beautiful item. Originally, men in the olden times often wore their personal seal as a pendant on a chain on their waistcoat, with their pocketwatch on the other pocket end of the chain.

    Not for the world. Why, man, she is mine own, And I as rich in having such a jewel As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl, The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold.
