Default Custom signet ring for Irish Soldier

I finished a commission the other day for a young man who recently became a fully trained Irish soldier.

It's a sterling silver signet with a 9ct disk on the top. All hand made by me. (had one hell of a time with porosity at the edges of the disk It wasn't easily visible but it would have bothered me if I left it so I cut a line around the outside edge where the gold and silver met which hid it all).
The lettering is about 0.5mm or 1/32" tall and means "Soldier of Ireland".

All cut with a Steve Lindsay Classic and a M42 graver sharpened with a 96 degree template. I know I probably should have used the 116 or 123 but the details were so small that I wanted them nice a deep (relatively) so they'd last.
