Here is a brilliant example of a superb quality antique cameo ring. Made in the 1860’s, this cameo ring is set in 18ct yellow gold was made in France and has the most superb quality hand carved cameo.
Carved in agate to show 2 different colours/layers, carving into a hardstone such as this was and still is considered so much harder than the traditional shell cameos. The attention to detail is simply amazing and what a fine quality cameo is all about. Close up you can see so much detail in her face and this is what separates a fine quality cameo from a poor quality one.
The top of the ring measures 1.8cm by 1.4cm and this ring will look sensational on any finger.
Fine quality antique cameo rings are hard to get in this condition, and this is one antique cameo ring that will be treasured.
