Central Europe, ca. 18th to 19th century CE. This is an 18K+ gold ring inset with carved carnelian intaglio. Carved carnelian has been made into jewelry since ancient Egypt, but the portrait style and intricate design of the ring place this in the early modern period. Fans of the Napoleonic period will find this particularly beautiful. Size: US ring size 11, weighing 10.7 grams.
Provenance: Ex-private UK collection.
