This is a BEAUTIFUL ring. It Is a men’s size 9. There is a tiny chip and can be seen clearly in pic 2. I contacted the owner we bought it from for details and this is what she wrote back to me. Late Victorian (circa 1880s) signet /intaglio ring in 18k. The ring has great symbolism – the entwined necks of the two peacocks create both a heart and an infinity symbol. The peacock has long been associated with marriage and symbolizes the following. Showing your true colors. A walk of faith. Incorruptibility a take on that forsaking all others line from traditional wedding vows! In Greco-Roman mythology, the peacock is connected to Hera/Juno who, lore says, made the peacock from Argus with his hundred eyes. Thus, that mark on the peacocks tail feathers that looks like an eye and in some legends symbolizes the eyes of the stars. In Hindu culture, the Peacock is associated with the deity Lakshmi, representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and good luck. The peacock is also a symbol of Kwan-Yin in Asian lore, as an emblem of love, compassionate watchfulness, nurturing and kind-heartedness. Thank you for looking!
