This is an antique cameo and 14K yellow gold ring sitting 5/16 inch (9.5 MM) above the finger, measuring 11/16 inch (17.5 MM) wide at the center. As early as 1805, craftsmen began using shell for cameos because it was easily carved due to its many layers, as compared to onyx or agate.Designs throughout history include many subjects. But, the most common of all is that of a noble Romanesque maiden with classic features, Roman dress, jewelry and intricately, often floral embellished hair. The ring is prong set with a "frameless" oval carved shell cameo measuring 17.5 MM by 13 MM. The ring is extremely solid and well made with a solid gallery for structure and finished look and a closed back.
There are some nicks on the gallery that are not easily seen on the finger and are mentioned for accuracy. The ring is marked, tested and guaranteed 14K and has been professionally cleaned and brightly polished. It is a size 6 and weighs 6.2 grams.
