UK Size. O…..USA Size. 7.00

This is a lovely antique ring, which is set with a hand-carved cameo of a lady’s head.

The picture is not carved out of a soft piece of shell, like in most cameo rings, but is carved out of a two layered hardstone of white over black. This is, of course, much more difficult to achieve, and the carver must be a real artist to accomplish such a feat. The cameo with its gold surround is 1.4cm long and 1cm wide.

The inside of the ring is stamped “585”, which is a German mark for solid 14 carat gold and bears the maker’s initials of “HD”.

Difficult to date precisely, but I would think Circa.1910 or thereabouts.

The ring is a UK Size. O……USA Size. 7.00 and weighs 2.76 grams.  It is in excellent overall condition, with just the lightest of wear you would expect of a ring of this age.

An unusual and attractive ring, for those who like something different in their jewellery.
