DESCRIPTION:
This splendid antique intaglio ring is crafted in 18K solid gold and features a beautiful carnelian stone. The 18 karat gold mount is rich in color with a ancient Roman setting twist. The carnelian, which is the reddish-brown version of chalcedony, has orange overtones and is highly translucent. It has been deeply and expertly carved to to depict the profile of a stately woman.

This is the perfect unisex piece of jewelry: A man can wear this regal intaglio ring as it echoes the ancient tradition of seal rings that were often worn on the little finger so as to make it easy to seal letters. But a woman will also find that the intaglio is so elegantly construed that it is is reminiscent of the best of cameo jewelry. It is like wearing an "object d'art" on your finger.

This exemplary ring is in excellent estate condition and has a substantial feel to it. The intaglio is free of cracks or chips. It is set in an attractive 18-carat solid gold mount with a solid shank. Any white or cloudy spots on the images are glare and/or photographic obstructions.
