BLACK/WHITE BEGGING DOG VINTAGE CERAMIC CAMEO GOLD OVAL SIGNET RING
MADE TO ORDER
Rare vintage Wedgwood cameo mounted in hand polished 9 carat gold.
Dogs symbolise unconditional love, loyalty, faithfulness and protection.
This unusual east-west signet ring in Wedgwood's famous matt 'Black balsalt' Jasperware with white bas-relief motif can be worn by men or women and suits any finger.
This vintage cameo is one of the last to be produced by Wedgwood’s Stoke-on-Trent factory and dates from the 1950s- 1980s. The hand made, kiln fired quality makes it slightly irregular and each setting has to be adjusted to fit the bespoke 9ct solid gold setting.
This ring will be lost wax cast, polished and set by hand in London, England and finally hallmarked in Hatton Garden, London.
Please allow 3-6 weeks for delivery. All rings are bespoke and made to order and non returnable unless faulty.

The Wedgwood pottery is now a museum and owned by the Victoria and Albert museum. Due to the scarcity of the cameos these rings are of very limited editions.
Ferian's designer Leonie Branston has a special interest in preserving and reframing British crafts so they can be enjoyed and appreciated by a contemporary audience. At Ferian we are particularly drawn to the vintage Wedgwood cameos dating from the 1950s-80s featuring heraldry, nature and nautical motifs for use in our jewellery.
Abolitionist, potter, entrepreneur, Josiah Wedgwood revolutionised ceramics. His pioneering spirit transformed a cottage industry into an art form, and his legacy is internationally renowned today. Founded in the 1770s the elegant designs were influenced by classicism, but his pottery though decorative was functional, durable and made to be enjoyed and used by generations. The signature fine matt porcelain — known as Jasperware, was developed after over 10,000 experiments. Many unique colours were created; Dark blue, Portland blue, Lilac and Sage green, but by far the most famous is the Pale blue, a tone recognisable around the world today. The patterned bas-relief motifs were delicately applied by hand then kiln fired.
