Roman Hardstone Intaglio Signet Ring

$2,200.00


Description

DATE: Roman, c.1800

Cool Georgian ring crafted in the ancient Roman style and set with an actual ancient hardstone intaglio (!!) Depicted is a woman's head in profile, with long hair tied up in a bun, surrounded by various letters and symbols (which I lack the relevant expertise to decipher, any help very welcom). The look to me like: V, an arrow, W I K, a snake or squiggle, and an H or an I. Crafted in 15 karat gold with a loop of applied ropework around the head and three gold pommels at the shoulders and back of the band.
