Signet ring from Emily Scott nee Cape circa 1865

Surnames: Cape, Scott,Lang
I own a signet ring that was given to Charles Lang (son of Gideon Scott Lang and Elizabeth Jane Cape) by his Aunt Emily Scott
on the occasion of his 17th birthday in 1865. Charles in turn passed this ring to my grandfather Patrick William Lang in 1942.

At present, I am unable to find any evidence of Emily Scott (nee Cape)...can anyone help, as she does not seem to show up in any family trees.
I would love to know more about the signet ring's story, as it is in black, but does have the Lang "Une Stay" crest upon it. It would be great to be able to know the age of the crest, and if it was created in Victorian times or is in fact much older....
