A beautiful tiny signet - originally this would have been made as a baby ring, but would be perfect now as a pinky midi ring or strung on a chain as a pendant.

While the practice of giving babies jewelry has ancient roots in protection and decoration, the Victorians in particular loved to adorn little ones - though these tiny rings were much more often given as a keepsake, stored away or worn by the mother. It's helpful to remember that with infant mortality so high in the 1800s, a small physical item like this was not only a lovely way to celebrate the birth of a child, but would also serve as a memento if the child didn't survive.
