Antique Georgian Ring 12k Gold Hands Hardstone Intaglio Cameo f Man Woman (6714)


Antique Georgian ring. 12k red gold. Hardstone intaglio. Ring dates to late 18th / early 19th century. Cameo believed to be Victorian. Unisex - for man or woman.  <P><P>
Measurements: US size 7.25. Weight is 4.1 grams. <P><P>
Description : Georgian ring, suitable for a man or a woman. Band forking as it nears the shoulders to a semi-circle above which rests a hand, open to hold the bezel.  Hands on either side of the bezel form the shoulders.  Bezel is typical Georgian - closed gold backs, raised and gently flaring at the sides, with beaded borders enclosing a hardstone cameo intaglio. The intaglio depicts a warrior in a helmet. We believe the cameo is later than the ring. It was common for jewelry to be updated as parts wore or for more trendy fashion.  <P><P>
Marks and Metal:  As is to be expected of jewelry of this period, there are no marks on the ring. Gold was acid tested.  <P><P>
Condition: Good with minor wear commensurate with age.  Please see enlarged pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions which we will do our best to answer.
