Unite Or Die Sleek Signet

Rare Victorian bloodstone effect paste intaglio sleek signet ring

Imagery of a severed snake and the words ‘unite or die’

Small chip to top edge of seal – doesn’t detract from beauty of the piece, in our opinion

Generously set in 18ct yellow gold

Why we love it

This bloodstone effect intaglio features a snake cleft in twain (poor chap), accompanied by the punchy motto ‘Unite or Die’.

Once again the Victorians demonstrate nothing much changes. Strength in numbers, togetherness breeds security. Unite or die, it’s a stark message we all need to hear (particularly those of the despotic disposition, not mentioning any names …).

In the words of John Donne:

“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main…”

And still the penny hasn’t dropped for so many. Fore shame!

Seek connection, be part of a community, take that leap. Trust. Love. Love in all its guises. Love, love, love (those Liverpool lads knew its importance). You’ll be all the better for it.
