Quite the most flattering of antique cameo rings, this piece has a sumptuous 'heritage' aura which just cannot be replicated. The central oval is a hand carved Banded Agate of a Roman maiden with draped shoulders, nicely framed in a raised bezel with Acanthus style shaping to the shoulders. The beautifully tapered band has wonderful repousse style shaping which continues around and creates a harmonious completeness of feel.
Set in 14ct yellow gold, this ring cannot be sized for it is wax filled, as was the convention at the time to these moulded designs. The finger size is an 'M' or US '6 and a quarter'. The central panel measures 10mm by 12mm.
