A Roman sapphire intaglio - Circa 2nd Century A.D. Though they were keenly collected in antiquity, most carved gems originally functioned as seals, often mounted in a ring; intaglio designs register most clearly when viewed by the recipient of a letter as an impression in hardened wax. A finely carved seal was practical, as it made forgery more difficult - the distinctive personal signature did not really exist in antiquity.

These hatched seals could also be used for sealing wax, but they are more commonly associate with wafers.
