Dated "Aug 30, 32" this seal ring depicts a dragon and the phrase "pax quoeritur bello" loosely translated "peace through war. Throughout its life, the ring was used as a seal, there is still a slight bit of wax in some of the letters. Aside from the hand engraving of the date, it is marked "14k" inside. Through a little research, it seems to be a Cromwell crest, but it is unknown which one. The oval seal portion measures approximately 15.5 mm long and 13 mm wide. The rest of the band gradually tapers to 3.8 mm wide on the back of the band. It is well constructed and beautifully made. It is currently a size 6.25.
