This beautiful Victorian 14k gold cameo ring, circa the turn of the century, features the profile of a helmeted warrior carved out of red sardonyx. The top layer of the stone, where the warrior is carved in incredible detail, is a creamy white, while the remaining oval is a glowing peachy color. The warrior wears a roman style helmet, topped with a delicate feather, and has an expressive face and flowing robe. The cameo is bezel set, and the 14k gold ring has a lovely crisscross Florentine surface to it.
A substantial ring, the cameo is 3/4” x 1/2”. The ring weighs 12.1 grams. It is marked on the inside as 14k gold. The cameo is in excellent condition with no chips or scratches. A wonderful ring, perfect for a person of any gender, with great presence on the hand.
Ring size 7; could be sized up or down.
