This antique cameo ring has beautiful translucence when held under the light and is free of any chips, cracks or flakes. The sterling silver setting has been hand polished. It has a lovely patina which accents the engraved work and finely detailed setting. The ornate setting has marcasite accents and a decorative band with engraved feather detail.
The large oval shell carved cameo measures 18mm X 9mm. The ring is a size 6 1/2 and marked sterling for metal purity. We find no makers mark.
We acquired this piece with a lovely cameo necklace that you can find by clicking here. They make an incredible set. A fine example of Art Nouveau period jewelry.
