Antique hardstone cameo and pearl ring made in 1903

Most cameos are carved from shell and only the best carvers of cameo use hardstone material such as in this antique cameo ring that is full of character and life.

Made in 18ct yellow gold in the Edwardian time in London in 1903, this cameo is made of sardonyx which is a naturally layered material from the quartz family.
Being layered is a natural choice for many hardstone cameos for the obvious reason that as the carver goes into the material, different colours are found at different depths to allow for a wonderful colour contrast.
Hand carved of a maiden dancing, cameos really are as unique as a painting.

Surrounded by 20 natural seed pearls, the cameo with the pearl border measures 19.7mm by 10mm wide.
The band itself has the most elegant and charming scroll work on both sides adding that extra character making antique rings so unique and beautiful.

This is such a delightful antique cameo ring that will suit any finger that it is worn on.
