I Personally verified the age and quality of the ring with a museum expert in Islamic Art and he verified the date and quality of work as Authentic Fine Qajar Signet Ring. The Calligraphy on the Agate is Top quality and is Nastaliq Script.
It has the Name of Imam Hussain The Grand Son of Prophet Mohammed and The Son of Ali Bin Abi Taleb. The Ring was made as a Signet or Seal ring which is written in a Mirror Image so it can be used as a Seal.
It is dated 1288 in Arabic Number on the Stone. These types of Rings where used as Talisman or Amulets for their Protection Powers. The text on the ring is : Khak An Shahe Shahidan Hussain 1228 which means: "The dust under the feet of the Kings of all Martyrs Hussain" This is an expression of ultimate devotion and being humble.
It was a common practice in the past for some people not to write their own name in their personal seal but instead mention the name of their spiritual leaders. This was an act of devotion and being humble.People would recognize the seal by the unique design and elements as certain person's personal seal.
