Medieval Silver Seal for sale

Silver seals are the rarest of all seals and would have been owned by the elite of society. They were very expensive to produce and would have had to be commissioned by gold smiths. These high status seals sometimes have early intaglios set in to them, most of which are Roman in date and made from semi-precious stones. The stones or intaglios were thought to have magical properties. The engraving on the silver seals is superior because the metal is softer and easier to cut than the bronze.
