SOLD * 14kt Gold Ring w/ Carnelian Intaglio c1850 Goddess Minerva

  • Product Info

    Nothing combines beauty and dignity like the classic golden ring set with a dark hard stone intaglio.  This intaglio, a reverse sort of cameo, is carved in an oval carnelian stone. The stone is bezel set in 14kt yellow gold. The theme of the carving is Minerva, Roman goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare,  sponsor of the arts and trade.  Her Greek equivalent is Athena.  The ring is size 7 3/4 and can be easily sized within reason.  The band is marked inside 14kt; the mark is rubbed partially away from age and normal use.  The gold has been tested as 14kt.  In excellent condition.  This ring would look attractive on women and as a pinkie ring on men.  SOLD
