Etruscan Revival Hardstone Cameo Ring c1880

Etruscan Revival Hardstone Cameo Ring c1880

Both elegant and bold, this outstanding cameo's beauty is only matched by the dynamic details of its setting. The handmade design of this ring speaks to the Etruscan Revival of the Grand Period in Victorian jewelry. The ancient woman is beautifully carved in sculptural detail. She holds a bird, standing in tall grass– white, in relief of the hardstone's black background. Hardstone cameos are among the most valued types of cameos, considering the skill it takes to carve them and their superior integrity over time. The setting is grand in its remarkable details, but acts as a dynamic frame for the cameo, and does not overpower it. It is set with natural seed pearls in 14k rose gold. The top of the ring measures 3/4 inch long and about 1/2 inch wide. The ring is currently a size 5 1/2 and may be resized up or down upon request.
